Key excerpts from the interview with API Market Development Group Director Todd Snitchler:

“Natural gas has changed the energy equation in a number of ways. With natural gas, customers are saving a lot of money in that they are getting their power and their home heating fuel at a much lower cost. Studies have shown that the average household has saved about $655 a year as a result of the greater utilization of natural gas which is an immediate benefit to people’s pocketbooks.”

“On average about 35-40 percent of electricity comes from natural gas depending on the region of the country and that has increased pretty dramatically over the last 10-15 years. You’ve seen a reduction in the amount of coal and an increase in the amount of renewables and natural gas that has balanced out our fuel diversity across the country.”
