Virginia Energy

Natural gas has many advantages over other fuels. It has fewer impurities, is less chemically complex, and its combustion results in less pollution. You may already be familiar with the many benefits of natural gas


Natural gas furnaces deliver warm air without the cool draftiness associated with an electric heat pump.



Regardless of whether the sun is shining or the wind is blowing, natural gas is always there for you.



Busy lifestyles demand appliances that are not only highly efficient, but also save you time. With natural gas, you can have an endless supply of hot water, precise temperature control for cooking, and faster drying for your laundry.



If you're looking to save on your energy bills, look no further. Natural gas provides the best energy value, costing less than electricity, propane and heating oil.


A recent American Petroleum Institute study shows that the direct, indirect and induced number of jobs provided by the oil and gas industry in Virginia is 125,500 jobs provides nearly $7.0 billion in wages and contributes nearly $12.0 billion to the state’s economy.


 It is my hope that the Commonwealth of Virginia will continue its support of development of the natural gas industry as it moves forward in its review and implementation of Virginia’s Energy Plan. I urge the Division to acknowledge the fundamental importance of oil and natural gas to the Commonwealth’s economy, citizenry, and future as it moves forward in its review and implementation of Virginia’s Energy Plan.


Thank You
