A variety of economic benefits

  • Natural gas for vehicles is exempt from taxes, thanks to a Québec government initiative to encourage carriers to take an economic shift and ‘go green’;
  • When you fill up with natural gas, you pay exactly the commodity price billed by our suppliers. Énergir doesn't charge any profit on that price;
  • Énergir constantly search for the best price, using our highly diversified procurement portfolio.

The first criterion for adoption is financial. Fuel is one of the biggest expenses for a carrier.
