The carbon offset program is focused on protecting Michigan forests that naturally absorb greenhouse gases. Renewable natural gas will be sourced by transforming landfill emissions and wastewater treatment plant by-products into usable gas.

Natural Gas Balance offers customers a way to affordably offset 25 percent  to 100 percent of greenhouse gas emissions from an average home’s natural gas use.

Grand Rapids-based Madcap Coffee has also joined the program and are offering a $10 Madcap Coffee gift card for the first 200 customers who sign up for the Natural Gas Balance program.
