Yankee Gas pipeline to be available to households?

Last Tuesday, Yankee Gas presented their plan for an east / west natural gas pipeline through Cheshire. The NHRs Luther Turmelle reports:

Mark Smith, the project manager for the expansion, said the pipeline will benefit Cheshire by increasing the amount of natural gas available to businesses and homes as well as initially adding $100,000 a year in tax revenues.

And with regard to the possibility of homes hooking up to the NG pipeline as an alternative to oil or electricity as heat sources, I spoke here:

I didn't know we were getting a pipeline made in China.

How will this work? Will the homeowner be charged to have it laid in the street like the sewer pipes and then pay to have it hooked up to their home?

Tim: We can't see what the Waterbury-Wallingford line looks like. Do you recall what areas of town this will run through? I am interested in getting rid of my electric home and tired of burning wood!
