Fortis utility approved for renewable gas project in Vancouver, British Columbia

The British Columbia Utilities Commission approved Fortis Inc. subsidiary FortisBC Energy Inc. and the city of Vancouver to produce renewable natural gas at the city landfill.

The project is in line with the government's CleanBC strategy that involves developing more renewable energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, according to an Oct. 24 news release. The project includes capturing and purifying biogas from decomposing organic matter to produce renewable natural gas, or RNG, which would then be blended with conventional gas in FortisBC's gas facilities.

"This new and substantial supply will bring us closer to our target of having 15% of our gas supply be renewable by 2030," Douglas Stout, FortisBC vice president of external relations and market development, said in the release. "This is our largest RNG project to date and the RNG generated from the landfill will be delivered into the local natural gas distribution system as a renewable source of energy."

Construction is scheduled to start in 2020 and is expected to take 18 to 24 months. FortisBC owns and operates two RNG purification facilities on landfills.

FortisBC and the city of Vancouver entered into a memorandum of understanding in 2017 outlining various activities over the next five years to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Fortis is an electric and gas utility serving customers in five Canadian provinces, nine U.S. states and three Caribbean countries. FortisBC is a gas distributor with over 1 million customers in British Columbia.
