WGL Energy is a strong supporter of Earth Day 2022 and its theme: ‘Invest in Our Planet’. Through programs such as CleanSteps®, WGL Energy offers individuals the opportunity to invest in the future by purchasing carbon offsets that counteract the greenhouse gases (GHGs) produced by everyday activities such as charging electronics, dining out and commuting. The environmental benefit of just one carbon offset – equal to one metric ton of avoided greenhouse gas emissions — compares to taking an average passenger vehicle off the road for about two months.*
For those still working from home, purchasing carbon offsets equal to one metric ton of CO2 per month is a fantastic way to Invest in Our Planet. Commuters and those who want to go above and beyond often purchase carbon offsets equal to one and a half or two metric tons of CO2 per month, which can help to counteract both their own GHGs and possibly those of others.
For over 25 years, WGL Energy has been providing renewable energy solutions to homeowners, small businesses and large enterprises across the Mid-Atlantic - proving its continual commitment to support sustainability and promote a green economy. WGL Energy makes it easy for everyone to do their part to protect our Earth, today and everyday.
