Natural gas is a trusted energy source that has been around for many years and has recently experienced a surge in utilization. This source delivers many advantages to consumers from efficiency, affordability, reliability and many others. Innovation is crucial to keep this resource competitive within the energy industry and its popularity is pertinent to Canada as a thriving nation. With its growing capabilities, it is becoming a force to be reckoned with- that will most definitely stand the test of time.

A contentious issue globally, and within the energy industry in particular, is the need to reduce our carbon footprint by minimizing greenhouse gas emissions. One way to address this concern is by incorporating more clean energy into our energy mix. As shown in the chart below Canada’s current energy mix reveals that natural gas provides 34% of our energy needs and solar energy is included in the 6.1% along with other renewables. This is a significant difference and leads us to question whether more solar energy should be incorporated into the mix. This post attempts to guide consumers to a conclusion by contrasting the benefits of using natural gas versus solar energy.
