Southern Says It Can Reach Climate Goals With ‘Renewable’ Gas

Southern Co. said its natural gas utilities can reach the company’s net-zero carbon goal by blending in more methane captured from dairy farms and other agricultural activities. 

Using more so-called renewable natural gas along with efficiency measures is less expensive and provides greater greenhouse-gas reductions than requiring customers to electrify their homes and buildings, according to a study commissioned by Southern.
