The Propane Division of the Greater Dickson Gas Authority was established in August of 1992 utilizing our old “standby” propane peak shaving system which was no longer adequate to meet the growth needs of our natural gas system. With minimum conversion, the standby system was converted into a propane bulk plant. We felt this would better utilize our existing idle equipment, and also meet the growth needs of potential gas customers.
Up until that time, when it was not feasible to serve a customer with natural gas their option was another propane company or electricity which did not permit Greater Dickson Gas Authority to provide the potential customer any of our other services. By the establishment of our Propane Division we were able to provide customers with propane until such time it becomes feasible to serve them with natural gas. We feel this move into propane has been very successful by permitting the Authority to provide service to more customers. As of January 2009 we serve 2,600 customers within a 25-30 mile radius of Dickson which includes portions of these seven (7) counties (Dickson, Montgomery, Houston, Humphreys, Hickman, Williamson and Cheatham).
