Dalton Utilities has one of the largest municipal natural gas distribution systems in Georgia. During the late 1940s, Dalton’s carpet industry found it needed an economical alternative to electrical energy to dry carpet and cure latex. Dalton Utilities took the initiative and lobbied the Federal Power Commission for permission to obtain a natural gas connection. In 1952, permission was granted. Since that time, Dalton Utilities has expanded natural gas service to meet the needs of a growing community.
