Environmentally Friendly

Using natural gas at home can reduce your carbon footprint.

Each of us can make a difference. And when it comes to energy, people and communities worldwide are eager to transition to smarter, better energy choices. Natural gas is a key part of that transition and can help ease the way.

Natural gas is the cleanest fossil fuel

Natural gas is inherently efficient and abundant throughout the United States and Canada, providing clean energy for a wide range of local uses in homes, schools, and businesses.

  • When burned, natural gas produces about 45 percent less carbon dioxide than coal, about 30 percent less than oil, and about 15 percent less than wood.
  • Natural gas is extremely efficient when it combusts, producing heat, water vapor and carbon dioxide.
  • Natural gas produces almost no carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, dissolved solids or airborne particulates, all of which can be harmful to human and animal health.

Upgrading to high-efficiency natural gas appliances reduces emissions while helping you lower your energy bills and stay comfortable.
