Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Chesapeake Utilities is a Delaware corporation formed in 1947. We are a diversified energy company engaged, through our operating divisions and subsidiaries, in regulated energy, unregulated energy and other businesses. We operate primarily on the east coast of the United States and provide natural gas distribution and transmission; electric distribution and generation; propane gas distribution; mobile compressed natural gas services; steam generation; and other energy-related services.
  • In March 2020, the CDC declared a national emergency due to the rapidly growing outbreak of COVID-19. In response to this declaration and the rapid spread of COVID-19 within the United States, federal, state and local governments throughout the country imposed varying degrees of restrictions on social and commercial activity to promote social distancing in an effort to slow the spread of the illness. These restrictions significantly impacted economic conditions in the United States beginning in 2020 and persisted throughout 2021, though to a lesser extent. Chesapeake Utilities is considered an “essential business,” which allowed us to continue operational activities and construction projects while social distancing restrictions were in place.
  • As of June 30, 2022, these restrictions have predominantly been lifted as vaccines have become widely available in the United States. Previously existing states of emergency in all of our service territories expired during the second and third quarters of 2021, eliminating a majority of restrictions initially implemented to slow the spread of the virus. The expiration of the states of emergency along with the settlement of our limited proceeding in Florida, has concluded our ability to defer incremental pandemic related costs for consideration through the applicable regulatory process. We have adjusted our operating practices accordingly to ensure the safety of our operations and will take the necessary actions to comply with the CDC, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, as new developments occur.
