How is renewable natural gas produced?
Organic waste is collected and taken to a biomethanation plant.
Waste is put into biodigesters. Microbes and other bacteria then break down the organic waste into renewable natural gas (RNG).
Renewable natural gas
RNG is injected into the gas network. This clean energy is ready to use.
Choosing renewable natural gas
is quick and easy.
Switch to clean energy without swapping out your appliances by choosing renewable natural gas—a type of energy that's produced entirely from organic waste and plays a direct role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
We've got answers.
RNG and conventional natural gas flow through the same network, so they intermingle with each other.
When you purchase any amount of RNG, that volume is guaranteed to be injected into the network, replacing a proportional amount of conventional natural gas.
The volume you purchase is listed on the itemized invoice detailing your total consumption of natural gas.

The cost gap between renewable natural gas (RNG) and traditional natural gas is based on different production processes and costs, and on the availability of inventories in a context of high demand for renewable energy.
As is the case with traditional natural gas, Énergir does not profit from the sale of the RNG molecule, and our teams make every effort to ensure it is supplied at the lowest cost to all our customers.
No. You don't need to buy or modify any equipment, because RNG and natural gas are interchangeable.
RNG meets our quality standards and can be used for the same purposes as natural gas.
You may change or modify your Renewable Natural Gas consumption profile each 1st of the month with a minimum prior notice. In the next few weeks, it will become possible to do so by logging into your Customer Space .
In the meantime, you must send this notice by email to [email protected] specifying the desired date for the change in consumption, the revised consumption percentage, your account number and the consumer address on your account.
Énergir is following suit and has replaced the traditional natural gas used in nine of its business offices as well as three trucks in its fleet with RNG.
