Natural gas is already clean and getting cleaner. It’s true, since our country started using increasing amounts of natural gas to generate electricity, fuel vehicles and provide the comforts of home, our air is cleaner too.  Soon, renewable natural gas (RNG) and hydrogen, delivered to homes and businesses by the existing natural gas distribution system we have already invested in, will decarbonize the pipeline. Natural gas furnaces deliver warm air without the draftiness associated with an electric heat pump.
