Enter your contact information, we’ll answer your questions about carbon neutral natural gas, so you can make an impact!
Carbon neutrality starts with innovative people like you – we just help make it possible. Shipley Energy connects customers across Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Ohio with opportunities like carbon neutral natural gas.
Carbon neutral simply means that the emissions produced by fueling your home with natural gas are balanced by verified carbon offset projects.
When you choose to purchase carbon neutral natural gas, you fund projects that actively remove or prevent an equal amount of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases from being released into the air.
Today, you always hear about how you can make an impact by installing solar panels, purchasing a new, high-efficiency furnace, or downsizing your house. For many, these options are costly and unattainable.
Choosing carbon neutral natural gas is a simple, low-cost way that anyone can make an immediate difference!
The average household produces about 10,500 pounds of carbon dioxide emission a year using natural gas. This is the close equivalent of any one of these actions:
Choosing a Carbon Neutral Natural Gas plan from Shipley Energy allows you to offset these emissions!
Nothing! The cost of carbon offsets are included in your affordable natural gas rate when you choose an eligible plan.
Making an impact has never been easier. While there’s a lot of technical info out there, choosing a carbon neutral natural gas plan from Shipley Energy makes the process simple.
Our team has done the heavy lifting – including researching the carbon offsets, verifications, and best organizations to work with. We even handle your usage and billing.

I have the absolute best prices on my electric and natural gas! Very happy!Shara T.
When you choose to purchase carbon-neutral natural gas, you fund projects that actively remove or prevent an equal amount of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases from being released into the air. Shipley Energy is a proud partner with multiple green projects that help make the earth a greener place. Through our customer’s support, we are proud to be helping in making a difference.
The South Kent Landfill collects the methane and other gases produced by the decomposition of buried organic materials. In 2009, the landfill installed two electric generators with a combined capacity of 3.2 megawatts. That earned it recognition by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Landfill Methane Outreach Program as Community Partner of the Year.
The methane is burned in the generators, feeding electricity into the local power grid. The landfill also accepts electronics, holiday light strings, and appliances for recycling, and chemicals and other hazardous household wastes for safe disposal.
At the Greater New Bedford Regional Refuse Management District’s Crapo Hill Landfill, a system of wells and pipes collects the landfill gas. Burning the landfill gas for power does emit carbon dioxide. But the Environmental Protection Agency says methane is 25 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, so trading methane for CO2 is a good deal for the planet. Electricity and waste heat from the generators help operate an adjacent anaerobic digestion facility that uses food and other organic waste to produce biogas—which goes back to the power plant as a supplemental fuel.
So the project turns various kinds of waste into electricity while creating income for the landfill and jobs for local residents. And every year it keeps an estimated 88,437 metric tons (97,485 US tons) of carbon dioxide or equivalent greenhouse gases from going into the atmosphere.
The sanctuary established a carbon project that generates income through the sale of carbon offsets. The improved forest management sequesters 45,000 metric tons (49,604 US tons) of carbon dioxide each year above the regional baseline. The project is part of Working Woodlands, a program designed by Bluesource and The Nature Conservancy to encourage forest conservation through carbon offsets.
A carbon offset represents the reduction of 1 metric ton (2,205 pounds) of carbon dioxide emissions. Hawk Mountain does so by absorbing (sequestering) CO2 from the atmosphere.
Environmental project developer Bluesource worked with Middlebury College on conserving 2,100 acres of pristine Green Mountain Forest at its Bread Loaf Campus in perpetuity through an easement. The project generates carbon offsets by annually sequestering more than 19,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalents above the regional baseline. The college retains enough carbon credits to offset its remaining carbon impact. It sells the rest on the voluntary offset market.
A carbon offset represents the reduction of 1 metric ton (2,205 pounds) of carbon dioxide emissions. The Middlebury project does that by absorbing (sequestering) CO2 from the atmosphere. The project meets UN Sustainable Development Goals 4 (quality education), 6 (clean water and sanitation), 11 (sustainable cities and communities), 13 (climate action), and 15 (life on land).
