Why Choose Natural Gas…


Comfort and Lifestyle
Natural gas is not only the comfortable choice, it’s also the wisest. Natural gas appliances heat faster, are the choice of top chefs and make a home more cozy and energy efficient.  This is especially nice for those Indiana winters!

  • Natural gas heating systems keep your family warm in the winter.
  • Cooking on a natural gas range offers precise temperature control for delicious family meals and entertaining.
  • Natural gas water heaters keep the hot water flowing longer. Available in traditional tank and tankless models, natural gas water heaters use less energy than electric water heaters and typically cost less to operate.
  • Natural gas clothes dryers take better care of your clothes by drying them faster and with less energy.
  • Outdoor gas appliances bring the comfort of your home to the great outdoors. Natural gas grills, gas lights, gas logs, spa/pool heaters and fireplaces extend your enjoyment of the great outdoors to all year long.
  • In the event of a power outage, a natural gas standby generator will automatically turn on to provide electricity so your home and family are safe and comfortable.

Environmentally Friendly and Energy Efficient

It’s a fact. Natural gas is the best choice for more efficient and responsible energy use. Natural gas is a clean-burning, domestic fuel that emits close to 45 percent less carbon dioxide than any other readily available fuel source. And it provides a reliable supply for our energy needs today and tomorrow.

Clean Burning
Natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel, producing primarily carbon dioxide, water vapor and small amounts of nitrogen oxides. Other fossil fuels are coal and oil, which together with natural gas, account for about 88 percent of U.S. energy consumption.

Using natural gas addresses a number of environmental challenges simultaneously because natural gas emits fewer harmful pollutants known to cause greenhouse gases, smog and acid rain. A home with natural gas appliances produces 45 percent less carbon dioxide emissions than an all-electric home.

What is Your Carbon Footprint?
First let’s define what “carbon footprint” means. It’s the impact of the activities a person or business has on the environment, measured in units of carbon dioxide produced. The smaller your carbon footprint, the less harmful impact you have on the environment.


Natural gas is also efficient. More than 90 percent of the energy in natural gas is delivered to customers compared to only about 30 percent of the energy used to make electricity. The 70 percent loss of energy occurs while generating, transmitting and distributing electricity to your home.

An American Resource
Natural gas meets one-fourth of our nation’s energy needs. And 85 percent of the natural gas supply comes from the U.S. – which has enough energy to fuel the nation for generations to come. America’s abundant supply of natural gas can help reduce our dependence on foreign oil imports.

The majority of natural gas consumed in the United States is produced in North America.

  • 85 percent comes from United States
  • 12 percent comes from Canada
  • 3 percent comes from liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports

Energy is the lifeblood of our economy. Greater use of natural gas benefits Americans through cleaner air, energy independence and more jobs.
