Renewable Natural Gas
Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) is an exciting energy innovation: it’s made from organic waste produced by every day activities. As organic matter—such as food or cow manure—rots, it releases methane, a naturally-occurring greenhouse gas. For more than a decade we’ve worked with local farms, landfills, green energy companies and municipalities, to capture that methane and purify it to make RNG. Because we’re capturing methane that would otherwise escape into the atmosphere, and using it to make renewable energy, RNG is certified as a carbon neutral energy source.1
What is Renewable Natural Gas?
Did you know RNG is not a fossil fuel? It’s carbon neutral energy for BC homes and businesses—learn more about RNG and how we make it.
Environmental benefits of Renewable Natural Gas
Carbon neutral RNG helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It also puts organic waste to work, rather than sending it to a landfill. Learn more about the benefits of this sustainable energy source.
Current Renewable Natural Gas suppliers
We couldn’t offer the RNG program without our dedicated suppliers. Check out the farms, landfills and municipalities that are helping us put waste to work, creating sustainable energy. Meet our Renewable Natural Gas suppliers.
Renewable Natural Gas is affordable
RNG costs as little as $3 extra a month for an average household. We have options to suit every budget and a calculator to show how much your monthly contribution will reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Become a Renewable Natural Gas supplier
We’re uniquely positioned to purchase RNG from suppliers and inject it into our system. Learn more about the benefits of becoming an RNG supplier.

1Renewable Natural Gas is produced in a different manner than conventional natural gas. It is derived from biogas, which is produced from decomposing organic waste from landfills, agricultural waste and wastewater from treatment facilities. The biogas is captured and cleaned to create carbon neutral Renewable Natural Gas (also called biomethane).
