Learn About Natural Gas,

Natural gas can be used for vehicles, and in my opinion, is one of the best options for it. Natural gas happens to be the cleanest burning fossil fuel, so that automatically makes your vehicle clean. Renewable natural gas (RNG), and natural gas are compressed (CNG) to create the liquified natural gas (LNG) for your car/truck. According to Argonne National Laboratory’s Greenhouse Gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy Use in Transportation (GREET) model, light-duty vehicles running on conventional and shale natural gas can reduce life cycle greenhouse gas emissions by 15% (84% if running on RNG). Not only will your vehicle reduce greenhouse emissions, but it is also relatively at a lower cost. I know what you’re thinking… will my car operate the same? The answer is yes! NGVs will still have the same speed, power, and acceleration when compared to the other vehicles that run off of gasoline or diesel. So what are you waiting for? Your car can convert to an NGV easily, or you can purchase an already-made NGV vehicle here

Home/ Residential

Does your home have natural gas? Was it your choice? I had never used natural gas for residential purposes until about 2 years ago when I moved into an apartment that had it, and I felt like I discovered a hidden gem. Cooking with natural gas, not only cooks your food perfectly and even, but you can also control the heat yourself. This means with natural gas, you can heat up the stove quickly and continually adjust it to your needs. Now, I see why restaurants love it so much! The stove is not the only thing natural gas can heat up quickly in your home, it also works with your water heater, dryer, furnace, etc. According to U.S. Energy Information Administration, In 2019, the residential sector accounted for about 16% of total U.S. natural gas consumption, and natural gas was the source of about 24% of the U.S. residential sector's total energy consumption.

Business/ Commercial

Most business owners use natural gas to operate their business because it is high-performing while being cost-efficient. Natural gas heats up buildings, water, and dryers quickly and efficiently. It’s also used to cook, operate chilling, and cool the business’s equipment. A lot of restaurants rely on natural gas to prepare certain dishes, especially in the California restaurant industry. A lot of international cuisines could not be made without natural gas! These benefits are especially better for larger businesses such as office buildings or restaurants because saving costs on energy adds up after a while and allows you to use that money elsewhere. 


The last thing we want is for you to be out and about with a lack of information about natural gas. After reading this, you should feel more than comfortable with natural gas and have the intent to try it. Go ahead and try it today by clicking here.
