Many commercial and industrial customers, ranging in size from small offices to large shopping malls, depend on the city of Richmond for their natural gas needs. We're ready to provide a wide variety of customized products and services such as conversion to natural gas, gas equipment recommendations and information services.

Dry Cleaners

Natural gas offers the best energy value for water heating and heavy-duty dryers. Larger facilities may also benefit from gas ventilation units for make-up air and co-generation for your power requirements.

Learning Centers

Natural gas offers the best energy value for space heating, water heating, and food service equipment. Facilities may also benefit from gas cooling, desiccant dehumidification, and humidifiers and can be integrated with existing systems.

Medical Facilities

Natural gas will allow a healthcare facility to balance operating costs, quality of care and equipment reliability to maintain core services despite adverse conditions while offering the best energy value for heating, emergency generators, humidification and food service needs. Hospitals with strong electric and thermal load profiles are also excellent candidates for cogeneration, captive power generation and gas cooling applications.

Office Spaces

Natural gas offers the best energy value for space heating, water heating with simple change outs to new, more efficient heating and cooling systems that can lower operational costs, an important consideration where cents per square foot can "make or break" a lease renewal deal.

Strip Malls and Warehouses

Tenants will enjoy the benefits of warm gas heat, ample supplies of hot water and more. Bring greater warmth to warehouses with low-cost gas radiant heaters. Create a healthier air quality and cut fuel costs by converting to natural gas forklifts.
