Natural gas is the cost effective, versatile and environmentally friendly solution to fuel your business. Natural gas continues to be one of the lowest cost and most efficient energy sources available.

It’s cost effective.

You can save energy and money when you convert to using natural gas to heat your business. Also, rebates are available for certain equipment upgrades.

Natural gas is piped directly into your business. It’s always there when you need it and you never have to worry about running out of fuel or arranging for deliveries.

It’s efficient.

When you use natural gas, 90 percent of what is delivered to your business is considered useful energy, as opposed to electricity, which, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, loses more than two-thirds of its usable energy in its generation and transmission from the producer to your business.

It’s clean.

Natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel, helping to reduce our carbon footprint.

It’s abundant and domestic.

According to the American Gas Association, more than 85% of the natural gas used in the United States is domestically produced.
