Natural Gas Delivers Greater Value and Lower Emissions for the 2016-17 Winter Heating Season

The direct use of natural gas continues to be the most affordable energy option for home heating and offers lower greenhouse gas emissions than other home energy sources. After an extraordinarily warm winter last year, even normal conditions would mean that residential customers this year would use more gas on average and therefore see slightly higher bills. AGA predicts consumers will experience a nine to eleven percent increase in overall heating bills this winter compared to the 2015-16 winter heating season. 

 

Workforce Development

For generations, natural gas utilities have served communities and supported families through good paying jobs and the opportunity for career advancement. Natural gas is the foundation fuel for our nation’s clean and secure energy future and AGA members want to hire a diverse and inclusive workforce that will upgrade and maintain the energy infrastructure of the 21st century.
