Natural gas is an abundant, affordable and environmentally responsible fuel for New England and the rest of North America. By providing natural gas to homes, industries and electric generation facilities in the region, PNGTS sustains local economies while preserving the region’s environmental heritage.
Not only is natural gas plentiful here in North America, it’s also cleaner burning. It has fewer impurities than other fossil fuels, is less chemically complex and when burned produces far fewer greenhouse gases (GHGs) than many other fossil fuels.
And, while there are other sources of clean energy out there — notably wind and solar — with natural gas, even on overcast days with no wind, you can always count on a source of clean energy when you need it (Great news in winter).
