Natural gas costs less today than it did 10 years ago and massive deposits, newly discovered right here in North America, ensure that it will continue to be your most affordable energy source for many years to come.
Access to reliable and affordable energy allows businesses to thrive in a highly competitive environment. The natural gas industry supports hundreds of thousands of direct and indirect jobs, across the country and in your own community.
Natural gas is by far the cleanest burning conventional fuel, cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 25 per cent versus diesel and oil. It’s also a crucial low-emission partner to intermittent renewable energy sources like wind and solar, able to generate up to 30 per cent of Ontario’s electricity when the wind isn’t blowing and the sun isn’t shining.
Composed of hydrocarbons, an essential component in plastics, natural gas is needed to make over 6,000 household products, from sippy cups and running shoes to toothbrushes, tires and trash bags. Life wouldn’t be the same without natural gas.
