Five Reasons Why Natural Gas is an Environmentally Friendly and Safe Energy Choice

Share Article Helps Consumers Understand the Benefits of Switching to Natural Gas.

GasGeorgia, the innovative online shopping marketplace for natural gas service in Georgia, is educating consumers on the savings, reliability and efficiency of natural gas.

Understanding the benefits of natural gas is the first step for consumers to manage their energy needs, so GasGeorgia offers the following five reasons to switch to natural gas today:

  •     Natural gas produces fewer carbon dioxide, sulfur and nitrogen emissions than coal and oil. Using clean, dry natural gas in your home that has not been burned and used to generate electricity is a safe and efficient energy source.
  •     Natural gas works during a power outage. A pilot light can heat water nearly two times faster than an electric water heater, and a gas stove can be lit using a match, preventing any unnecessary interruption in the comforts of home.
  •     Natural gas is a domestic product, with 84 percent produced in the United States according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA). Almost all of the remaining 15 percent is produced in North America, lessening the dependence on foreign energy resources.
  •     The U.S. Department of Energy estimated that natural gas averages a total energy efficiency of 90 percent, more than triple that of coal and oil-fueled electricity.
  •     Natural gas is reliable and safe. Pipelines are constantly monitored and maintained for federal and state safety standards, and companies add a sulfur odor to gas to detect leakage early.

GasGeorgia is a dynamic Web site giving Georgia consumers the ability to compare, switch and move their natural gas services without interruption. To find out more about local natural gas companies and services, as well as additional natural gas tips and news, please go to
