Another sign of a growing Kamloops economy.
Fortis B.C Spokesperson Diane Sorace says, there was approximately 1,000 natural gas hookups in 2014 and 1,300 in 2017.
Sorace says they are seeing similar growth this year.
“That definitely is a healthy number in terms of comparable communities. That is a good number and like I said, we are seeing similar growth this year as well.”
In 2017, Fortis saw a record of 20,800 new natural gas customers in B.C. and eclipsed one million gas customers in the province last fall.
