Underground storage of natural gas is an integral component of the nation’s energy system, and our nation’s significant storage capacity enables utilities to reliably offer clean natural gas to consumers throughout the year in a cost-efficient manner and without interruption.
Awareness of the energy economy has steadily grown beyond the purview of business and public policy. Economic and environmental concerns have become increasingly important drivers of consumer decisions about energy. With this has come heightened attention to the potential for energy efficiency to moderate consumer cost increases, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance energy security. For natural gas utilities, investing in energy efficiency programs presents an opportunity to achieve these objectives and benefit the communities they serve.
