“Cleaner burning natural gas is the best way for any business to meet growing energy needs while reducing costs and carbon emissions,” said Bill Swan, president of Heritage Gas. “Heritage Gas is pleased to work with Michelin to deliver an environmentally friendly source of energy that will improve its operational efficiencies.”

By making the move to natural gas, Michelin will see significant energy cost savings within our Granton plant, said Jeff MacLean, plant manager, Michelin Canada Pictou County.

“In addition, natural gas is helping us to further improve our impact on our environment as a cleaner source of energy. We’re doing the right thing for our business and our environment.”

Earlier this month, Heritage Gas announced that, if its application to the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board is approved, New Glasgow and Stellarton businesses and residents will have access to natural gas later this year.
