Responsible Energy for Our Environment

Natural gas is an efficient and clean-burning fuel produces about 50 percent less carbon emissions than any other traditional energy source. With natural gas appliances, you use less total energy to fuel your home or business.


Because natural gas produces primarily carbon dioxide, water vapor and small amounts of nitrogen oxides, a home with natural gas has a lower carbon footprint than an all-electric home.
