A significant number of families and businesses in communities across Canada don’t have access to natural gas. They are dependent on more expensive, less reliable, and higher emitting options. This is because the natural gas distribution network has not yet expanded to these communities.
Natural Gas Benefits
Natural gas emits lower levels of greenhouse gases and air pollution than any other fuel source including heating oil, propane, and, in some jurisdictions, electricity. As well, natural gas technology is highly efficient and an ideal partner for renewables like wind and solar.
Natural gas can reduce energy costs for Canadian homes, businesses, and institutions. Residential consumers can save between $1,500 and $2,500/year switching to natural gas.
