Industrial

While high, unstable energy prices can make industrial efforts unprofitable, the greater availability and lower cost of natural gas is greatly fueling the ability of US companies to compete in agricultural and other industrial markets—and helping to bring large industry back to the US.

Please contact the FNGA or your local natural gas utility for a wide variety of customized products, equipment recommendations and services specific to your industry, as well as possible rebates and other financial incentives that may be available. Plus, see below for examples of how natural gas is proving itself a valuable asset in the farming industry.
