By the end of 2022 Northern Ireland’s natural gas infrastructure will have passed over 550,000 properties. Connecting a further 230,000 properties to the network would deliver an impressive carbon reduction saving of 1.7million tonnes of CO2 each year.
Commenting on the announcement, Paul Stanfield Director of Sales, Marketing and Customer Operations with firmus energy, said:
“firmus energy currently supplies gas to over 100,000 homes and businesses throughout Northern Ireland. Our continued investment emphasises our commitment to Northern Ireland’s local economy and its communities. We are committed to providing the lowest possible tariffs to ensure natural gas continues to be attractive for both domestic and business customers.
“Our network extension inevitably leads to an increase in the demand for firmus energy approved natural gas installers. We have dedicated installers across the region who work alongside the local firmus energy advisory team to help ensure seamless service provision across the board. New customers can enjoy both the cost and environmental benefits natural gas has to offer”.
Energy users switching from home heating oil to natural gas immediately reduce their carbon emissions by 50%. This is achieved through the introduction of a carbon cleaner fuel and the associated efficiencies of a highly efficient natural gas boiler and controls. This means that continuing to grow the natural gas network in Northern Ireland will unlock major carbon savings and help the region’s journey towards net carbon zero.
