Families Benefit from Marcellus Shale Development

One benefit of Marcellus Shale development we don't often hear is that it is reuniting and strengthening families across Pennsylvania.

While many have heard of the obvious economic benefits and consumer savings made possible thanks to this development, a new video "Women of the Marcellus" produced by Energy In Depth highlights the stories of families whose lives have improved thanks to Marcellus development.

The video highlights a dairy farmer in Troy who expanded operations and a young couple that purchased a bed and breakfast in Towanda – and there are many other stories of families brought together from Marcellus development.

With the Marcellus employing over 229,000 Pennsylvanians (over two percent of the commonwealth's population), it's comforting to know that our younger generation can find work and families can stay together as a result.
