The Responsible Choice for Environmental Solutions

Natural gas is a clean-burning, domestic fuel that emits about 50 percent less carbon dioxide than any other traditional energy source. Plus natural gas uses less total energy to fuel your home or business.

Clean Burning

Natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel, producing primarily carbon dioxide, water vapor and small amounts of nitrogen oxides.

Using natural gas addresses a number of environmental challenges simultaneously because natural gas emits fewer harmful pollutants known to cause greenhouse gases, smog and acid rain. A home with natural gas appliances produces 45 percent less carbon dioxide emissions than an all-electric home.

Efficient

Natural gas is also efficient. More than 90 percent of the energy in natural gas is delivered to customers compared to only about 30 percent of the energy used to make electricity. The 70 percent loss of energy occurs while generating, transmitting and distributing electricity to your home.
