New Natural Gas Fuel Hub Opens in Kelowna

SEATTLE (Oil Monster):  A new natural gas fuel hub has opened in Kelowna.

The expansion in the province’s compressed natural gas (CNG) network will make it possible for vehicles to drive from the Lower Mainland to the Interior without having to worry about refuelling.

It will also be open to the public 24/7.

“This is an important investment in Kelowna, one that contributes to our economy while also providing transportation companies with an option to lower carbon emissions,” Mayor Colin Basran explained.

He also praised waste-hauling firm E360S.

“It’s great to see E360S using this fuel to take garbage to the [Glenmore] landfill, where FortisBC converts organic matter into more Renewable Natural Gas,” he said.

It is expected that the company will reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by about 25% every year thanks to the Acland Road facility.

“Having fleets adopt natural gas helps the province meet its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction goals, and improves air quality in the communities in which they operate,” said Sarah Smith, director of NGT, regional LNG and RNG with FortisBC.

“By providing fleet owners and operators incentives to adopt natural gas, we’re reinforcing our position as an active partner and leader in reducing GHG emissions in British Columbia (BC) while also reducing costs for our customers.”

Transportation, FortisBC explained, represents about 40% of all British Columbia’s greenhouse gas emissions.
