Local natural gas supplier firmus energy has outlined its investment of £1.3 million in the Armagh area in the final half of 2019.
The local investment formed part of a wider £10.3 million construction programme across Northern Ireland and work is already underway to extend the network further and connect new properties.
Established in 2006, firmus energy supplies gas to over 95,000 homes and businesses throughout Northern Ireland. The company has invested more than £10.5 million in the Armagh area to date, where it currently has over 1,566 customers.
In the next six months, the total number of connectable properties in Armagh are expected to rise by over 1,500.
Commenting on the announcement, Paul Stanfield Director of Sales, Marketing and Customer Operations with firmus energy, said: “Armagh is a key town in our network area, we are pleased to announce such a significant investment which helps re-emphasise our commitment to the local area. The network extension inevitably leads to an increase in the demand for firmus approved natural gas installers.
“We have a number of dedicated installers who work alongside the local firmus energy advisory team in the Armagh area to help ensure seamless service provision across the board.”
