BELLEVILLE — Through the Enbridge Gas Inc. (Enbridge Gas) Industrial Energy Conservation program, Coco Paving Inc. (Coco Group) is receiving $51,348 in support of recent energy efficiency upgrades at its Belleville facility. This investment helps the company reduce costs, lower emissions and improve competitiveness, and contributes to Ontario’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The Canadian construction company received incentives for three projects completed at its Belleville site in 2021. The projects equate to an estimated natural gas savings of 169,559 m3 per year. Additionally, the company will save approximately $33,911 in natural gas costs. These cost savings have been redirected into enhancing Coco Paving’s operations including investing in cleaner equipment and technologies.

The projects included two separate feasibility studies that looked at introducing alternative materials into the company’s operations to help enhance energy efficiency, and a project aimed at finding a solution for developing a more durable asphalt mix for cold climate roads.

The Enbridge Gas Industrial Energy Conservation program is designed to guide, assist and reward end-use customers to improve energy efficiency and environmental performance in new construction or on major renovation projects.

“The success of Enbridge’s Energy Efficiency programs is completely dependent on working with our customers and understanding all of their energy solution needs. While natural gas continues to be one of the most economical fuels, we also want to ensure that our customers are being as efficient as possible with their usage. The combination of innovation, collaboration and conservation efforts has proven a successful strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions today as we move to a clean energy future.” said Jean-Benoit Trahan, Director Eastern Region Operations & Gazifère, Enbridge Gas.
