NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS:

NATURAL GAS VEHICLE REFUELING STATION

After a successful  pilot project that began with 2 and has now grown to 8 CNG trucks, the County is proceeding with conversion of its entire light-duty fleet, and construction of a publicly accessible CNG Refueling Station.  We have obtained 50% funding for construction of the Station from Natural Resources Canada, and are pursuing additional funding from other initiatives targeting GHG reductions including Emissions Reduction Alberta and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.

 

Since 2018, the County CNG fleet has reduced fuel costs by $80,000. Conversion of the entire County light duty fleet to CNG, in conjunction with construction of the CNG Refueling Station, is projected to provide the County with 15-year net savings of over $600,000 and reduce our light vehicle emissions by 25%.  The public CNG Refueling Station will allow private fleet and vehicle owners to access the benefits of CNG vehicles.  Stay tuned for details or contact us any time for information on CNG vehicle opportunities for you or your business.

FEDERAL CARBON LEVY

Effective January 1, 2020 the Federal Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act will come into effect in Alberta, resulting in a carbon levy charged on fuel and combustible waste. As a result, the County Natural Gas Utility will be required to charge a $1.05/GJ Carbon Levy beginning in January and will increase to $1.576/GJ effective April 1, 2020. An information circular pertaining to Carbon Levy on Natural Gas will be included with the December Gas Bills, and more information can be obtained at https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/tax/excise-taxes-duties-levies/fuel-charge.html
