UGIES Employee Publishes Memoir - The Boy from Boadua: One African's Journey of Hunger and Sacrifice in Pursuit of a Dream
Those of us around the office know Patrick. We know of his quiet, polite manner. We know that we can rely on him to help us understand the energy market. Most of us know that he was born and raised in Ghana. Some of us even know that he went to university in the Soviet Union during the perestroika era. But none of us really knew his true story of how he came from such a humble beginning, and of the incredible tenacity, determination, and, yes, a little bit of luck, that brought his brilliant mind to the team at UGI Energy Services.
Until the publication of his book.

There’s no more telling sign of winter then the first big snowstorm. When the icy air makes its way to our region and the weather reports are buzzing, it’s important to take some steps to prepare your home and/or business ahead of time.
It’s officially winter! If you’re from the northeast U.S., snowstorms are likely headed your way. Though they can be magical and exciting, storms and other bad weather can lead to power and other outages. Outages can quickly become dangerous, sometimes lasting days or longer.
Outages can affect entire communities. They can disrupt communication, water availability, and transportation; close businesses like grocery stores, gas stations, banks, and more; cause food and water contamination; and prevent the use of medical devices or medicine refrigeration.
As a business owner, being prepared and knowing what to do before, during, and after a power outage can help keep your staff and customers safe.
