La Sopfeu saved nearly
60%
compared to using oil.

An investment that paid off in two years

To convert to natural gas heating, SOPFEU only needed to connect a powerful 680,000 BTU natural gas furnace to their existing system. They received a $15,050 grant to have it installed by Gilles Morin Chauffage, their Gaz Métro Authorized Partner. The initial investment paid for itself in just two years, thanks to the savings SOPFEU realized by switching from oil.

"Natural gas is much more affordable and 90% more energy efficient."

Easy to maintain

"We don’t have to manage the energy supply with natural gas and the system is easy to maintain," said Benoît Ménard, base director.
