A balanced energy mix
We build and operate energy infrastructure in order to provide oil, natural gas and electricity to millions of homes nationwide. As supporters of North America’s move to a balanced energy mix, we’ve invested more than $5 billion in emission-less energy sources. Today, approximately 65% of our power generation comes from low and non-emitting sources including natural gas, nuclear, hydro, wind and solar.
“We’re doing electric transmission projects that will carry clean energy to large markets that need it.”
