CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (WBOY) – Dominion Energy West Virginia, or Hope Gas, was recently sold to the ‘Ullico and Hearthstone’ Utilities Incorporation, and starting on Sept. 1, that sale will start to bring jobs back to West Virginia.
Hearthstone owns gas utilities in five different states, as well as water utilities in two states. Before they bought Dominion Energy WV, a lot of the work was being performed outside of the state, in places like Virginia and Ohio. But as part of the acquisition, Hope Gas is hoping to bring those jobs back to West Virginia.
Hearthstone Utilities Inc. CEO and president Morgan O’Brien said he believes that within this first year, the company will bring around 100 jobs to residents in West Virginia.
