It’s a simple switch, but one that can mean enough in savings for a nice holiday.
According to a new report from professional services consultancy ICF International, homeowners in areas currently not served by natural gas but suitable for natural expansion, can save over $1,600 per year moving to natural gas for heating says new ICF international report
The Canadian Gas Association recently worked with ICF International to examine the benefits of natural gas expansion across Canada. The report is good news for anyone who has advocated for expanded access to clean, reliable and affordable natural gas here in Ontario. Connecting more Canadian homes and businesses to natural gas will save consumers money, while reducing emissions.
This new report concludes that moving homes, businesses and industrial facilities to natural gas for heating will mean major costs savings for Canadian homeowners and businesses. As an example, if the average homeowner in the study group makes the switch to natural gas, the report finds a potential reduction of $1,600 per year in energy costs.
Additionally, the ICF International report continues to build the case that natural gas is an ally in the fight to combat climate change. Currently, many homes and businesses heat with higher cost and higher-emitting energy sources. Connecting these homes and businesses to clean, reliable and affordable natural gas would be like taking 405,625 passenger vehicles off the road for one year, greatly reducing emissions.
