Cheshire Medical makes CNG switch

Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene is changing its heat source from fuel oil to compressed natural gas, a conversion that officials say will result in a noticeable reduction in carbon dioxide and other emissions, creating a cleaner environment for its patients, employees and neighbors.

Because the hospital is not located on a gas pipeline, it previously did not have the option of converting to gas, but Vermont-based NG Advantage LLC will be trucking gas in high–tech carbon fiber trailers from its compressor station in Pembroke.

The company provides very large energy users with gas through what it calls a “virtual pipeline” of a fleet of tractor trailers.
