SoCalGas has been distributing safe and reliable natural gas to consumers for over 150 years, allowing them to warm their homes, have hot water, cook meals and dry clothes efficiently.  Some use natural gas for their fireplace, outside barbecue, or to heat their pool.  Natural gas is affordable, abundant, and the energy source choice in most homes and businesses.  Natural gas is part of a diverse mix of energy sources that supply California with clean, reliable, affordable energy.

Energy sources from natural gas, wind, solar, biomass, coal and hydropower work together to provide the energy we use every day.  Together,  they create a “balanced energy system” that provides reliable and sustainable energy for everyone.

In 1000 words or less, can you tell us why it important to have a balanced energy system verses relying on only one source of energy?
