There are many reasons to use natural gas, especially if you’re part of a rural community in Ohio. We help Ohio residents in rural areas save time and money with natural gas in 40 counties. A recent article clearly outlined five benefits to using natural gas.
1 - Natural gas is extremely cost effective. In addition, certain equipment upgrades will make you eligible for rebates when switching to natural gas.
2 - Natural gas is reliable. Unlike electricity that can go out during bad weather or solar or wind power that may fluctuate in terms of amount of energy generated, natural gas is a reliable source of energy.
3 - Natural gas is efficient. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that up to two-thirds of electricity is lost in generation and transmission. This isn’t the case with natural gas, which is often 90% useful energy. That’s a significant difference.
4 - Natural gas burns cleaner than other fossil fuels. You can help to reduce your carbon footprint with the use of natural gas.
5 - Natural gas is both abundant and domestically available. The American Gas Association currently estimates that more than 80% of natural gas used in the United States was produced domestically. This helps to reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign oil.
