Alternative Fuels

The U.S. has vast supplies of natural gas, and Florida has a series of dependable pipelines transporting it to the state. Peoples Gas and its dedicated team deliver that gas – along with a packaged solution – in whatever form makes the most sense for your business.

Natural gas provides a safe and reliable fuel strategy that supports sustainability goals.


Compressed Natural Gas

Natural gas is the cleanest fossil fuel on the market today that can be used in place of gasoline, diesel and propane. Compressed natural gas, or CNG, is used by fleets to lower costs, reduce NOx emissions and ensure stability for operations.

Once limited, CNG fueling infrastructure is now strategically located and expanding throughout Florida, including public stations and public/private partnerships to accommodate diverse fleet needs.

Buses, trucks and passenger vehicles that have routine routes and fueling schedules benefit the most from lower-cost CNG.

Renewable Natural Gas

Biogas that is naturally produced from waste streams can be captured and cleaned to create pipeline-quality fuel that is available around the clock. Renewable natural gas, or RNG, drastically reduces carbon emissions. In fact, some RNG sources allow for carbon neutral or even below net zero emissions. Gases from waste water treatment plants, municipal landfills, livestock waste, and agricultural processes that are typically unabated or flared can be put to use as an eco-friendly fuel.

Peoples Gas created a special utility rate to stimulate more RNG development for direct use in transportation and to build reliable renewable energy into its system that serves all customers.

Liquefied Natural Gas

Natural gas is a domestically produced gaseous fuel that is lighter than air. This form makes it challenging to move the energy from production sites to faraway locations for end use.

Technology is now used to cool natural gas to liquid with no need for pressurized storage or transport because the volume is more than 600 times smaller than its natural state. The liquefied natural gas, or LNG, can be placed on ships and moved across the globe. It can also be used as affordable, sustainable and reliable fueling for ships and trains.


Combined Heat and Power

Peoples Gas offers customized Combined Heat and Power (CHP) solutions for energy-intensive industrial and commercial facilities to improve reliability, strengthen resilience, and boost energy efficiency. Incorporating CHP into your energy strategy can ultimately lower daily and annual operating costs.

CHP is an energy-efficient technology that uses natural gas to generate electricity and captures the heat that would otherwise be wasted to provide useful thermal energy for space heating, cooling, hot water, and industrial processes.

Here are a few examples of CHP Applications:

Rubber and Plastics
Food Processing
Pulp and Paper

Office, Retail, Condominiums, Hotels
Nursing Homes
Warehouses & Factories
Data Centers
Super Markets

Wastewater Plant
Residential Confinement

Animal Feed
Plant Waste
Small Biomass
Wood Waste

Car Washes
