The project consists of an 80 km extension of the natural gas distribution network. The work will be carried out from May to December 2020 by the contractor Pomerleau. The arrival of natural gas in the region will result in an annual reduction of more than 2,000 tonnes of GHGs, in addition to significantly reducing emissions of air pollutants.
Over the long term, this gas network extension project will provide the Chaudière-Appalaches region with the infrastructure and potential to participate in Québec’s energy transition with the production and consumption of local and renewable natural gas.
