American Gas Association launches public education campaign
 

June 16, 2017. The American Gas Association (AGA) announced the launch of “Your Energy,” a national consumer education campaign aimed at raising awareness about the critical role that natural gas plays in the lives of Americans.

   “Natural gas makes America stronger,” said Pierce H. Norton II, president and CEO of ONE Gas Inc., and chair of the board of AGA. “AGA’s ‘Your Energy’ campaign will shine a light on the tremendous benefits of natural gas for American households and businesses. American-made natural gas supports environmental progress, national security and a healthy economy.”

   The “Your Energy” campaign will bring attention to the many benefits of natural gas, including:

• Natural gas is the primary driver of U.S. carbon emission reductions, which are now at 25-year lows.

• Natural gas partners with wind, solar and hydropower — renewable energy sources whose energy production varies — to deliver energy that is reliable, environmentally friendly and affordable.

• Clean, reliable, safe and affordable natural gas warms our homes, cooks our meals — helping to fuel our lives and our businesses.

   The “Your Energy” campaign will include community outreach, social media engagement, advertising, and other promotions. Resources for policy makers, elected officials, the media and consumers will also be made available via specific state based programming that will highlight the positive impact natural gas can have for families, communities and state economies throughout the country, beginning in Connecticut and Virginia.
