As the Sun Sets on our Streetlights…

Posted: March 12, 2019

This month marks six years since the launch of one of our most popular programs to date, and what a six years it has been.  Our LED Streetlight Program has been responsible for installing over 200,000 streetlights in 177 municipalities.  Funding for streetlight retrofits is ending in at the end of 2020, and as a result our program will be winding down this year.

LAS Natural Gas Program Update

Posted: March 27, 2019

Natural gas commodity prices averaged $0.082/m3 through the winter (Nov-Mar), which is up compared to last year’s winter average of $0.076/m3. The upward movement in natural gas prices was primarily due to extreme cold weather throughout the majority of Canada, which led to lower Canadian natural gas inventories. In Eastern Canadian markets, natural gas prices have come off significantly from the levels seen at the end of November/beginning of December. Mid-December, prices in the East were trading at levels not seen in several years, mainly due to natural gas storage concerns. A mild December and strong natural US gas production through 2018 and into 2019 have returned natural gas inventories to “adequate” levels; although, still tracking behind last year and the 5-year average, which is impacting pricing in the day markets and short term.
