Reducing electrical input

Reducing your construction costs

Electrical input challenges can often add up to costly commercial projects. When you choose natural gas, you reduce construction costs and offer your customers superior comfort and performance.

Supply

Count on long-term reliability

Natural gas has the advantage of flowing continuously, ensuring a steady supply. In North America, the soil contains enough gas for over 100 years, so you can rely on it for many years to come.

Superior comfort

Offer your customers comfortable living environments

Nothing makes the occupants of your buildings feel at home quite like air quality and thermal comfort. And with natural gas, they’ll enjoy all these benefits.

A source of energy for the future

Integrate natural gas into your LEED projects

Natural gas is the ideal solution when it comes to making a choice between energy efficiency and social impact. 

Natural gas is the cleanest hydrocarbon. It emits less CO
2, pollutants and fine particles—all  contributors to smog, acid rain and global warming. What’s more, natural gas can be used with other sources of energy or mixed with biomethane from organic waste.

With high-efficiency appliances and equipment, natural gas can be easily integrated into projects on track for LEED certification, contributing to the evolution of an environmentally respectful society. No wonder natural gas is a source of energy for the future!
