Whistler Natural Gas Conversion

About this project

To help Whistler prepare for the 2010 Winter Olympics, we converted the community from an existing propane system to natural gas in 2009, in support of the city’s Sustainable Energy Plan. The addition of a natural gas pipeline was built together with the expansion of the Sea-to-Sky Highway (Highway 99). This route reduced environmental impacts and minimized the cost of construction through mountainous terrain. In just 84 days, a team of more than 100 FortisBC employees and contractors retrofitted about 14,000 propane appliances to operate safely on natural gas.
