American Gas Association Launches “Your Energy” Public Education Campaign
WASHINGTON, DC— Today the American Gas Association (AGA) announced the launch of “Your Energy,” a national consumer education campaign aimed at raising awareness about the critical role that natural gas plays in the lives of Americans.
“Natural gas makes America stronger,” said Pierce H. Norton II, president and CEO of ONE Gas Inc., and chair of the board of AGA. “AGA’s ‘Your Energy’ campaign will shine a light on the tremendous benefits of natural gas for American households and businesses. American-made natural gas supports environmental progress, national security and a healthy economy.”
The “Your Energy” campaign will bring attention to the many benefits of natural gas, including:
- Natural gas is the primary driver of U.S. carbon emission reductions, which are now at 25-year lows.
- Natural gas partners with wind, solar and hydropower — renewable energy sources whose energy production varies — to deliver energy that is reliable, environmentally friendly and affordable.
- Clean, reliable, safe and affordable natural gas warms our homes, cooks our meals — helping to fuel our lives and our businesses.
The “Your Energy” campaign will include community outreach, social media engagement, advertising, and other promotions. Resources for policy makers, elected officials, the media and consumers will also be made available via specific state based programming that will highlight the positive impact natural gas can have for families, communities and state economies throughout the country, beginning in Connecticut and Virginia. “Your Energy” can be found online at yourenergyamerica.com.
The American Gas Association, founded in 1918, represents more than 200 local energy companies that deliver clean natural gas throughout the United States. There are more than 73 million residential, commercial and industrial natural gas customers in the U.S., of which 95 percent — more than 69 million customers — receive their gas from AGA members. Today, natural gas meets more than one-fourth of the United States' energy needs.
