Why Natural Gas?

Food Processing is energy intensive. As an industry, the majority of thermal energy is provided by natural gas-fired boilers. The single largest use of electrical energy is for refrigeration. Building heating, cooling and lighting also use energy but are less significant users in production facilities; however, they are the majority users for warehouses and other non-production type facilities. The information provided here is intended to provide basic information about common fuel types and explain why Natural Gas offers a competive advantage over other options.
