CPAU Offers New Green-e Climate Certified Natural Gas Offset Program

January 2015 - The City of Palo Alto Utilities (CPAU) has begun offering PaloAltoGreen Gas, a gas-offset program that combines Green-e Climate certified carbon offsets with customers' natural gas use. Green-e Climate is a third-party certification program for high-quality retail carbon offsets sold on the voluntary market. Under the new program, both residential and commercial customers in Palo Alto will have the option to offset 100 percent of the emissions generated from their natural gas consumption. Businesses also can choose to buy carbon offsets in blocks of therms. This is the first natural gas offset program certified by Green-e Climate that residential customers are eligible to enroll in. It is also the first time that a municipal-level utility has offered a certified option to address environmental impacts of natural gas use.
