Choose Carbon Offsets Matched to Natural Gas Usage for Your Home
Choose natural gas from WGL Energy matched with carbon offsets to reduce your carbon footprint and support cleaner air and water. Customers who select our 100% carbon offset option counterbalance, or offset, the environmental impact of their residential natural gas usage.
A carbon offset represents a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions made in one place to compensate for emissions created in another place. Our carbon offsets come from emission reduction projects such as landfill gas capture and destruction and efficient transportation. They're our way of offering you an enhanced natural gas product and committing to cleaner air and water in our region.
