Frequently Asked Questions about CNG

What is Compressed Natural Gas (“CNG”)?


Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is methane gas that is compressed and is stored in a high-pressure storage tank.
 


Is CNG safe?


Yes, it is absolutely safe as a gas. Being lighter than air, in case of a leak, it rises up and disperses into the atmosphere. This property precisely makes it a safe fuel. Furthermore, CNG has a narrow Flammability range, if CNG’s concentration in the air is less than 5% and more than 15%, the gas will not burn even in the presence of a spark.
 

Why should I switch to CNG?


It is cheaper - CNG has consistently cost less than the typical fossil fuels (close to 30% savings)
It is safer – (Please refer to Question B)

Are my CNG supplies guaranteed?


Switching to CNG supplied by Powergas means never having to worry about the unreliability of pipe gas again. Powergas delivers gas to customers through the use of specialized trucks called Skids directly to your location.
