More than 1,800 residential customers have already signed up for service and more than 500 commercial customers have signed contracts with Summit.

UPM Madison, one of the regions largest manufacturers, is already working with Summit to use natural gas to power their boilers, lower their energy costs and reduce their environmental impact. Supporters of the project estimate Summit's pipeline projects will lower heating costs for more than 700 businesses and 4,500 individual customers in the next year, the Morning Sentinel reported.

The pipeline took less than a year to build and completes the first year of Summit's Kennebec Valley project. More pipeline construction is planned as well. Summit will add 85 miles of pipeline in the Kennebec Valley region and 66 miles in Cumberland, Falmouth and Yarmouth. The completed pipeline and future projects are all part of the infrastructure Summit is building in the Kennebec Valley to distribute natural gas.
