Do you know how much natural gas you’re using? A lot of people don’t. One third of energy commoditiesconsumed in California is natural gas. In fact, California's natural gas output equals about one-tenth of state demand. In fact, almost two-thirds of California households use natural gas for home heating, and about half of California's utility-scale net electricity generation is fueled by natural gas.
And when it comes to how we use natural gas, many consumers don’t realize how dependent they are on this commodity. But both homeowners and business owners need natural gas to run efficiently. And because natural gas is so convenient—accessible through pipes often hidden below ground—we don’t have to worry about running out of it. This likely contributes to many consumers not realizing all of the appliances they have capable of running on natural gas. Here are a few of them:
But natural gas isn’t just convenient. It’s also efficient. The direct use of natural gas achieves 92% efficiency, far better than any other energy source, and it cuts carbon emissions nearly in half. Plus it’s easier on the wallet, saving consumers hundreds of dollars every year compared to consumers using electricity.
