Seth A. Shapiro will become the new CEO of the Philadelphia Gas Works (PGW) at the end of next year when current CEO Craig White retires. Beginning Jan. 4, Shapiro will become PGW’s new chief operating officer. In an interview with the Philly Inquirer, Shapiro shared his thoughts on the future of the country’s largest municipally-owned natural gas utility. What will no doubt be a disappointment to Big Green radicals, Shapiro is not looking to stop the sale of natural gas. In fact, he wants to expand it.
