Townships that received natural gas impact fees from Act 13 of 2012 in 2021 are required to report to the Public Utility Commission on the use of these funds. The Unconventional Gas Well Fund Usage Report is due by April 15 of each year for the funds received in the prior year. The report can be filed electronically at https://www.act13-reporting.puc.pa.gov. Townships that do not receive impact fee funds from Act 13 of 2012 do not file this report.
Please note that while this report is for funds received in 2021, the reporting year for the form is 2020 because the PUC levies the fees based on criteria for the prior year. This means that the fees assessed by the PUC for the calendar year 2020 were received by townships in 2021. In addition, keep in mind that this is a one-time report that must show how your township used, or plans to use, all 2020 funds.
