    March 2 2017 CNG fueling and transit bus advances were announced late last month in British Columbia with FortisBC providing up to $480,000 to BC Transit toward the purchase of more CNG buses. Fortis also has invested in Jordair Compressors for fueling the utility's trucks and vans and for use by third party CNG fleet operators.
    In addition, BC transit has spent $15.4 million on 24 new CNG buses in its Nanaimo regional district. The XN40 Xcelsior buses by New Flyer would make the regional bus fleet 100% CNG fueled.

          Betsy Lillian for NGTNews Oct 2, 2019 - New Public CNG Refueling Opens in Kelowna, British Columbia

          According to FortisBC, the new station, open 24/7, is ideally located to fuel medium to large CNG vehicles in the area. The project received funding from Natural Resources Canada.

          Located on-site is a fueling station specifically for Environmental 360 Solutions Inc., a waste-hauling organization that picks up residential curbside garbage and delivers it to the Glenmore Landfill, which is one of the many landfills that provide organic waste used by FortisBC to produce renewable natural gas (RNG). E360S will fuel its fleet of waste haulers from a dedicated fueling system.

          Kelowna’s mayor, Colin Basran, says, “This is an important investment in Kelowna – one that contributes to our economy while also providing transportation companies with an option to lower carbon emissions. It’s great to see E360S using this fuel to take garbage to the landfill, where FortisBC converts organic matter into more renewable natural gas.”
