The beauty of gas

So, you are thinking of connecting your home to gas! You probably know that means the cooking is always fast, the hot water is always hot and your home is heated efficiently.  

You maybe wondering, however, as the conversation on climate change heats up, if there is a future for gas in NZ? We say yes! 100% renewable energy is an aspirational goal. Ultimately, we want Kiwis to feel confident in choosing gas for their home and confident they are contributing to a cleaner, greener Aotearoa. 

In fact, did you know that by using natural gas in your home it allows you to be kinder to the environment? When used directly, gas has fewer carbon emisions than peak time electricity. 

Aoteroa has a plentiful supply of gas for your home, and with future energy gas innovations like hydrogen gas, biogas and carbon capture that will further reduce emisions, gas will be part of NZ's energy future for decades to come.
