At Lake Apopka Natural Gas District (LANGD), we pride ourselves on the service we provide and the recognition we receive for a job well done. When we look back on 2023, we can do so with satisfaction, knowing that it was another successful year of delivering safe, reliable, and cost-effective natural gas to our amazing Apopka, Winter Garden, Clermont and surrounding communities!

Whether it was volunteering time donating non-perishables to local fundraisers, getting our neighbors ready for hurricane season by providing storm preparedness kits or continuing to support our Helping Hand customer assistance fund, LANGD proved time and again that we are here to support our community members through thick and thin.

Our efforts to strengthen the community by providing resilient and affordable natural gas continue to win awards and industry recognition from the American Public Gas Association (APGA) and the Florida Public Service Commission (FPSC). Recognized for the twelfth straight year in 2023, the APGA granted its annual Safety Award to the District for our dedication to natural gas safety standards, and we were also found fully compliant with state and federal natural gas pipeline safety rules by the FPSC for the seventh year in a row.

LANGD is also proud to have been selected for a 3.1 million dollar grant to continue improving our existing natural gas infrastructure. This incredible opportunity was presented to the LANGD team through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s “Natural Gas Distribution Infrastructure Safety and Modernization Grant Program” exclusively for community-owned, not-for-profit natural gas distribution utilities. Chosen as one of 37 recipients throughout 19 states, we’re improving public safety, protecting public health and reducing emissions from natural gas distribution equipment. We have our work cut out for us in 2024, and we couldn’t be more excited to implement these funds as we work toward providing reliable natural gas to our over 28,000 customers.

Helping our customers through the holiday season with reliability, comfort, and substantial savings, we keep our neighbors informed of ongoing incentives and benefits of making the switch to natural gas. For example, did you know that the U.S. Department of Energy found that “natural gas is 3.3 times more affordable than electricity and significantly more affordable than several other residential energy sources for the same amount of energy delivered?” So, if you’re considering switching from other, less-efficient energy sources, natural gas can be the perfect gift to yourself and your loved ones, putting money back in your pockets, which we all know is especially welcome during this time of year.

All-in-all, 2023 was one for the books; from being celebrated with industry recognition to staying involved in community events and providing exceptional service along the way, we are grateful for the growth we’ve shared over the past year and for our team’s dedication to a job well done, and we look forward to what 2024 has in store.

Thank you to everyone who made this a year one to remember. At LANGD, our resolution stays the same- to provide our communities with safe, affordable access to natural gas. Learn about switching to resilient and reliable natural gas with the District’s marketing team at (407) 656-2737, ext. 307,
