The city of Philadelphia has issued a request for proposals for a broker to manage a potential sale of the Philadelphia Gas Works, which serves around 500,000 residential and commercial customers.

“We believe that PGW will be viewed as a valuable asset by the private sector and that the sale could result in a substantial profit for the city,” said Mayor Michael Nutter. “We begin the search for a qualified broker with the same goal we will maintain throughout the process: ensuring that any deal for PGW will benefit customers and our city.”
