Renewable Natural Gas

Vermont Gas is committed to a sustainable future—that’s why we’re proud to offer our Renewable Natural Gas program. Renewable Natural Gas is created from the methane produced by the organic material in landfills, wastewater treatment facilities and farms. VGS Renewable Natural Gas Program gives customers another opportunity to make a difference.

Enroll in the VGS Renewable Natural Gas Program

Customers can sign up to purchase renewable attributes of RNG for a percentage of their natural gas usage (ex. 10%, 25%, 50% or 100%).

VGS Renewable Natural Gas program is an innovative offering that will allow Vermont Gas customers to displace the use of conventional natural gas by purchasing the renewable attributes of renewable natural gas (RNG) production. These renewable attributes correspond with the production of RNG by anaerobic digestion of organic matter at landfills, waste treatment plants, industrial sites and farm digesters that has been injected into the natural gas pipeline system.

Customers can participate in the program by signing up to purchase renewable attributes of RNG for a percentage of their natural gas usage (ex. 10%, 25%, 50% or 100%). Participating customers will be charged an “RNG Adder” corresponding to the chosen percentage on their monthly bills.

Use our interactive VGS Renewable Natural Gas Calculator to determine what level works best for your budget and efficiency goals.

The RNG Adder will be $1.2107 per CCF, but this will change each quarter with our approved rate changes. Use our interactive VGS Renewable Natural Gas Calculator to view our rates and determine what level works best for your budget and energy goals.

VGS Renewable Natural Gas current supply is sourced from landfill in Quebec, we are working to bring on additional supply sources from farm digesters and other sources.

An average customer household enrolling in the VGS Renewable Natural Gas program at the 100% level will effectively nullify the corresponding carbon footprint associated with the customer’s direct use of natural gas.  For a typical VGS residential customer using 900 ccf of conventional natural gas each year this equates to 4.9 metric tons of avoided carbon dioxide emission each year.
