Natural Gas: Low-Cost Energy Source that Curbs Emissions and Land Impacts
Natural gas is not only a low-cost source of electricity, it has positive environmental impacts. Gas-fired electricity production is responsible for lowering CO2, SO2, and NOx emissions. Compared with solar and wind plants, natural gas is many times over more efficient and reliable. It also uses considerably less land and with much less disruption of natural ecosystems than solar and wind plants.
