Birds ‘n Bites: Natural Gas Leakage and Home Electrification

Regular Events
Mar 21, 2023 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Please join us on Tuesday, March 21 at 7:00 PM for a virtual presentation via Zoom with Logan Mitchell, PhD, Climate Scientist and Energy Analyst with Utah Clean Energy.

Mr. Mitchell will discuss policy and regulatory updates targeted at reducing methane leakage, the health risks of using natural gas in your home, and what you can do to reduce natural gas use through home electrification.

Methane is the primary component of natural gas and is a potent greenhouse gas. Recent research on methane leakage from natural gas infrastructure shows exceptionally high leakage rates of 6-8% in the Uinta Basin where most of Utah’s natural gas originates. This high leakage rate is the CO2-equivalent of emissions from the entire transportation sector in the state of Utah.
