Enbridge reaches 12,000th Customer Milestone in NB
Enbridge Gas New Brunswick has reached an important milestone by recently attaching its 12,000th customer to the natural gas distribution network.
“Continued growth is an important part of building a sustainable natural gas industry in New Brunswick,” said Gilles Volpé, General Manager of Enbridge Gas New Brunswick.
“By providing our communities in southern New Brunswick with access to natural gas, approximately 7,800 homes and 4200 businesses are now benefiting from a safe, convenient and clean energy solution that saves them money compared to the alternatives.”
Enbridge now owns and operates over 800 km’s in 10 southern New Brunswick communities, serving the majority of its customers in greater Moncton and greater Fredericton areas.
While reaching the 12,000th customers milestone is a significant achievement for the natural gas utility, Enbridge Gas New Brunswick remains focused on continuing to grow the number of customers it serves in a cost-effective manner.
The organization distributed 970,000 Gigajoules of natural gas (the equivalent of over 25 million liters of oil) through its distribution system in January 2013 alone and continues to attach new customers every week.
“Milestones like this,” said Volpé, “demonstrate that natural gas is here to stay in New Brunswick as a clean and cost-effective energy solution.”
