Did you know natural gas leaks from pipes under our streets emit more greenhouse gasses than all of Massachusetts’ efficiency programs save?
In Massachusetts, 18% of the natural gas pipes under our streets are cast iron and 50 to 100 years old. They rust through and begin to leak, releasing methane, a gas 20 to 30 times more powerful than CO2.
HEET will help reduce these leaks. Be on the lookout for next month’s newsletter for information about HEET’s Squeaky Leak program!
