Case study


The Société de protection des forêts contre le feu (SOPFEU), based in a former terminal at Val-d'Or Airport, has some over-sized heating needs. When their old oil boilers conked out, this Abitibi-Témiscamingue non-profit organization turned to the savings and efficiency afforded by natural gas.

compared to using oil.

An investment that paid off in two years

To convert to natural gas heating, SOPFEU only needed to connect a powerful 680,000 BTU natural gas furnace to their existing system. They received a $15,050 grant to have it installed by Gilles Morin Heating, their Énergir Certified Natural Gas Partner. The initial investment paid for itself in just two years, thanks to the savings SOPFEU realized by switching from oil.

"Natural gas is much more affordable and 90% more energy efficient."

Easy to maintain

"We don't have to manage the energy supply with natural gas and the system is easy to maintain," said Benoît Ménard, base director.
