One of the most efficient energy sources available, natural gas heating systems and appliances have the highest “total energy efficiency.” This translates into the best energy value for you and your family. NBU’s natural gas is purchased from Houston-based company BP Energy, Inc. and trans­ported via the Gulf South Pipeline.

A LONG HISTORY WITH MANY USES

Made mostly of methane, a flammable gas that was formed deep in the earth millions of years ago, natu­ral gas is used everyday to cook food, heat water, dry clothes and heat and cool homes. 

 

The first use of gas energy in the United States occurred in 1816, when gaslights illuminated the streets of Baltimore, Md. By 1900, natural gas had been discovered in 17 states. During the years following World War II, expansion of the extensive interstate pipeline network occurred, bringing natural gas service to customers all over the country.

 

Today, natural gas is used extensively in residential, commercial and industrial applications. It is the main energy used for home heating: slightly more than half of American homes use gas. Increasingly, natural gas is being used for electric power generation as well. Call NBU 251-580-1626 to find out about your home's Natural Gas options.
