Private solar development is growing rapidly, with rooftop solar panels becoming an ever more common sight in neighborhoods across the nation. While those with rooftop solar might aspire to "go off the gird," the reality is that private solar customers remain dependent on the electric grid for reliable, low-cost electricity when their needs exceed their private solar output OR when they seek to sell excess energy to their utility.

The United States is home to abundant natural gas supplies, which are critical to meeting our increasing energy needs. As energy demand continues to grow, infrastructure projects like the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline that give Americans access to reliable, affordable energy are even more important. Along with providing a much-needed supply of natural gas, the Atlantic Coast Pipeline would create thousands of jobs and new, long-term revenue for West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina.

We tend to take our thermostats for granted. We crank the AC in the sweltering heat and don’t think twice about making the house warm and cozy during the dead of winter. But heating and cooling account for almost half of the energy use in the average American household, and place enormous demand on the electricity grid during periods of extreme weather. In 2016, for the first year ever, natural gas will supply more electricity in the U.S. than any other fuel source.
