Biogas a boost for city

By Wayne Moore, Castanet. 

FortisBC is hoping its natural gas customers will pay more to help the environment.

The utility company has introduced a new program that will allow you to introduce renewable natural gas into the system.

Promotional material included with the latest Fortis bill tells consumers for as little as $3 more a month for an average home, customers can designate up to five per cent of the natural gas they use as "renewable."
