* Based on U.S. EIA average annual household usage of 750 gas therms and 10,800 kWh of electricity and the EPA emission factors of 1.222 lbs CO2 per kWh of electricity and 0.005 metric tons of CO2 per 1 therm of natural gas.
By enrolling in the Carbon Conscious plan, the origin, physical content, and emissions characteristics of the natural gas delivered to your home will not change. However, Green Mountain ensures that you are offsetting the estimated carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with the stated percentage of your natural gas usage by purchasing carbon offsets under one or more third-party carbon offset standards.
