So hopeful: Natural Gas to our home, from Methane Capture!
For many years we have opted to pay a little more, to support 100% renewable electricity. We feel fortunate to be able to afford it, and it has felt good to do it.
In 2019, Weavers Way, our food co-op, posted a notice in The Shuttle, their weekly paper, that the Energy Co-op of Philadelphia (https://www.theenergy.coop/) was offering 100% methane capture gas service. (This, mostly from landfills now - but the dream is that down the line, meadows too, and more?)
The cost delta was about 20%, which can get hefty in the winter. After a conversation over the kitchen table, we decided to give it a go.
Think of it: no fracking, oil or coal.
Check it out, is it available where you live?
If not, who could make it happen? Maybe you?
