More than 20,000 light gasoline vehicles and Petroleum liquid gas (LPG), have agreed to the use of natural gas; according to information from the Ministry of Energy and Mines (mine).
The conversion took place through the GNV Savings Program, which finances the conversion to CNG with the resources of Energy Social Inclusion Fund (FISE), which allows owners a monthly savings of more than 50% in fuel consumption.
This program is carried out in the regions of Lima, Callao, Junín, Ica, Cusco, Piura, La Libertad, Ancash and Lambayeque, and it is planned to be extended to other regions of the country to the extent that they have natural gas service stations, such as is the case of Arequipa and Tumbes, the closest to having these CNG stations.
The Minem assured that for the beneficiaries, the return term is 3 years, in the case of users from the provinces, the program contemplates the allocation of a discount voucher of S / 1,000, applicable on the final price of the conversion, which will help reduce the value of the installment and will make the monthly payment of this credit feasible through the natural gas load at the service stations.
According to official statistics, to date 16,388 gasoline-powered vehicles have been converted to CNG, that is, 74.5% of the national total converted by the Program; while there are 5,633 LPG cars converted to CNG, which represents 25.5% of the universe of 22,021.
