Enchanted Rock launches world’s 1st net-zero carbon electrical resiliency microgrids using RNG

November 14, 2021 |

In Texas, Enchanted Rock’s customers now have the option to choose Renewable Natural Gas to achieve net-zero or negative carbon emissions. With this announcement, Enchanted Rock will now reduce carbon intensity of backup power by 100%.

RNG results from the capture and delivery of methane emissions from decomposing waste at landfills, agricultural waste, and water treatment. When injected into the existing natural gas pipeline system, it displaces the use of fossil-based gas, thus reducing the carbon equivalent emissions to zero or negative, depending on the source of the RNG.

According to the Environmental Defense Fund, methane has more than 80 times the warming power of carbon dioxide over the first 20 years after it reaches the atmosphere. This reinforces how effective RNG is for a company’s ESG initiatives and underlying mitigation for downstream global warming.
