We supply over 50,000 customers across our licensed area, and also compete in the natural gas market in Greater Belfast, where we supply over 50,000 customers. We love protecting the environment. We have displaced over 1 million tonnes in carbon emissions. That’s the same as taking 40,000 cars off the road. We have been building out our natural gas network since 2006 and in that time have laid approximately 1,700km of gas mains to bring a safe, affordable home heating alternative.
