Did you know?
Natural gas is AFFORDABLE.
Natural gas is one of the most inexpensive sources of energy and prices are expected to remain low, keeping monthly bills affordable. According to the American Gas Association, U.S. households using natural gas for heating, cooking, and clothes drying save an average of $879 every year compared to homes using electricity for the same activities.
Natural gas is EFFICIENT and ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY.
From source to site, natural gas is the most efficient fuel for your home, but why should customers care? Because, a more efficient fuel means a more environmentally friendly fuel. In fact, 92% of natural gas is delivered to your home as energy, compared with only 32% for electricity. That means that less energy is wasted in production and transportation to your home.
Natural gas is a proven solution to a sustainable future. Emissions from natural gas distribution systems have declined 73% over the past 30 years and we continue to reduce the impact on the environment. With natural gas, homeowners, builders or business owners have access to balanced energy solutions that are efficient, affordable and environmentally friendly.
Natural gas is RELIABLE.
Today and into the future, natural gas has a critical role in keeping power readily available every time you need it. Regardless of the weather, natural gas is a dependable energy source. In fact, with a backup generator, natural gas can keep your lights on, the same way it helps power hospitals and other critical facilities, when the power goes out.
“Texas Gas Service is proud to provide an essential service that is a vital part of a long-term sustainable energy future,” said Christy Penders, Texas Gas Service manager of public relations. “By choosing to power your home or business with natural gas, you’re making a smart business decision and contributing to Texas’ ability to minimize its carbon footprint.”
