Dominion Energy Utah Introduces a New Program to Help Customers Reduce Their Carbon Footprint

CarbonRight is now available to Dominion Energy customers in Utah and Idaho. CarbonRight is a novel and affordable solution for customers to reduce their carbon impact dramatically. Customers will offset carbon emissions associated with natural gas use in their homes or company by contributing to projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, including those in Utah.

The program is entirely voluntary and is open to all home users and companies, public buildings, and schools. Customers can contribute by purchasing carbon offsets in $5 increments on their monthly payment. A typical residential user can offset their entire carbon footprint by purchasing one $5 block per month, or $60 per year, achieving "net zero" carbon emissions from natural gas usage. Dominion Energy does not benefit from the carbon offset program and does not mark up the cost of the offsets.

"Our customers are looking for ways to have a positive impact on the environment, We share their passion, and we're excited to deliver with this exciting new program. Our customers can now have more peace of mind knowing that their energy dollars are being spent to protect the environment."

- Steven Ridge, Vice President and General Manager of Dominion Energy Utah.

The carbon offsets offered by the initiative come from programs in Utah and Missouri that minimize landfill carbon emissions, as well as a Minnesota forest management project that absorbs emissions from the environment. Offsets are independently certified to meet the highest standards through a rigorous and open procedure.

The new program is one manner in which Dominion Energy Utah assists its customers in reducing their carbon footprint. ThermWise, the company's energy conservation program, helps homeowners and businesses conserve energy and lower monthly utility bills. In addition, customers can participate in the voluntary GreenTherm program to support renewable natural gas projects that minimize greenhouse gas emissions from farms, food waste, and landfills, among other sources.

Additionally, the company is promoting the usage of carbon-free hydrogen and carbon-neutral renewable natural gas to cut emissions generated by customers' houses considerably. Discover how the company is advancing renewable natural gas and hydrogen for the benefit of customers, the environment, and the climate.
