The gas is always greener

Natural gas burns cleaner than other fossil fuels and because we use it in the same form in which it comes from the earth, it's safer for the environment. Natural gas requires no expensive, pollution-causing processing and takes little energy to carry it through the underground pipelines. That makes it about 90% efficient compared to only 29% efficiency for electricity. Learn more.
