As part of the 2014 WGL rebrand, WGL leadership identified the need to establish a new business unit, Economic Development, to attract revenue opportunities currently outside of the scope of the traditional gas utility business model. This WGL business unit strategically pursues direct revenue-generating opportunities and also proactively pursues political and policy opportunities that can drive future business.
