Sharp Energy headquarters opens in Georgetown
Chesapeake Utilities Corp. and Sharp Energy Inc., its wholly owned subsidiary, have opened the new Sharp Energy headquarters building and AutoGas fueling station in Georgetown.
The event was hosted by Chesapeake and Sharp Energy and attended by state, local and company officials.
The new 18,000-square-foot building provides a central location for both customers and employees and consolidates Sharp Energy's operations. With the construction of this new modern facility, Sharp Energy is able to house its retail and supply functions in one location, increase its storage capacity and offer a public dispensing center for AutoGas.
In addition, 20 positions have moved to the new facility almost doubling the previous number of employees based in Georgetown.
Sharp Energy's new headquarters site is the location of the seventh public AutoGas fueling station in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Sharp Energy's new facility incorporates green technology best management practices (GTBMPs) that consist of grassed channels, bio-swales and filter strips. These GTBMPs clean the runoff through filtration and reduce the amount of rainfall leaving the site.
The headquarters building is located on 12 acres of land. Construction was completed on time in May and created 80 construction jobs.
