Why is natural gas better for the environment?

When you’re thinking about the environment, it’s good to consider not only how clean your energy source is, but how efficiently it reaches your home. Natural gas provides the best of both worlds-it’s not only the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels, but converting it to useable energy at your home is far more efficient than the way in which electricity is produced. When fuel is converted to useable energy at a power plant, it has to be delivered over lengthy power lines, which can result in line loss-meaning less energy from the same amount of fuel.
