Our Mission

Swinerton Energy empowers clients across the nation to meet their energy resiliency goals through the adoption of renewable natural gas (RNG). The RNG infrastructure we construct captures harmful greenhouse methane produced from agriculture, landfill, and wastewater facilities and converts it into a natural gas. Not only does this process subvert the need for traditional fossil-fuel based gas, but it is consistently replenishable and compatible with existing gas infrastructure and equipment, thus preventing an additional load on our already taxed electrical grid.
