Renewable natural gas

Sustainable, locally-produced energy

Renewable natural gas (RNG) is a 100 per cent carbon neutral energy source. When bacteria breaks down organic waste from sources - primarily farms, landfills and wastewater treatment facilities - biogas is created. The gas is captured, purified, and blended into natural gas distribution pipelines and delivered to homes, businesses, transportation fleets, and industry. Customers don't need to upgrade furnaces, water heaters and other equipment to use RNG.
