A subsidiary of Norfolk Southern Corporation (NYSE: NSC), the railway company operates approximately 20,000 route miles in 22 states and the District of Columbia.

“Norfolk Southern operates the most extensive intermodal network in the East and is a major transporter of coal, automotive and industrial products,” said Andy Paul, senior manager of Energy and Facility Services at Norfolk Southern Railway Company. “The facilities across our network generate more than 22,000 monthly utility bills, and it is critical that we carefully manage our costs for electricity, gas and other utilities.
