Natural gas is an abundant energy source, found deep beneath the earth’s surface. It is odorless, colorless, and produces very few emissions. It is generally considered to be the cleanest fuel because of its clean-burning qualities. Due to its ease of use and positive environmental attributes, natural gas use is expanding to electrical power generation, cooling, and as fuel for natural gas vehicles (NGVs).

How Peoples Works

Natural gas provides about 24% of all the energy used in the United States. Gas utilities serve more than 60 million residential, commercial, and industrial customers through underground pipelines. It is the most popular energy used for home heating. According to statistics from the National Transportation Safety Board, natural gas pipelines are the safest method to transport fuel.
