DOVER, Del., Feb. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Chesapeake Utilities Corporation (NYSE: CPK) announces the establishment of a fuel injection point in Yulee, Florida, that enables the receipt of renewable natural gas (RNG) and supports the growing demand for energy from increased residential and commercial needs in Nassau County. The injection point can accept RNG, compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) and is the first enhancement of a gate system in Florida that allows for alternative fuels to be injected into the pipeline delivery system.
The new injection point will enhance Chesapeake Utilities’ subsidiary Florida Public Utilities’ (FPU) ability to incorporate renewable fuel into the existing pipeline delivery system and expand service to meet the growing demand in the Wildlight community and surrounding areas.
“Our Company is committed to providing energy in a way that’s both sustainable and reliable,” said Jeff Householder, president and CEO, Chesapeake Utilities. “With this enhancement to our infrastructure in Florida, we’re continuing to expand our capabilities to meet the growing demand from consumers. The ability to incorporate alternative fuels into our energy delivery systems will not only benefit consumers, but also contribute to a lower-carbon future for our customers and our communities.”
Other recent RNG-related investments by Chesapeake Utilities include construction of an RNG transportation project at a landfill site in Ohio; and the acquisition of Planet Found Energy Development, LLC, a poultry waste to biogas pilot facility in Maryland.
