Ever wonder where your energy comes from? You use energy in a variety of ways to keep your home comfortable. Most of the energy used in your home provides space heating, while a little over a quarter, or twenty-five percent, of energy is used at home powers electronics, lighting and other appliances. The most-consumed energy source in the United States is natural gas, followed by electricity. Natural gas is mainly used for home heating, while electricity is used for heating and cooling, lights and appliances.
The energy in your home was created by renewable or nonrenewable energy sources. Renewable energy sources can easily be replenished and include hydro, solar, geothermal, biomass and wind power. Nonrenewable energy sources cannot be recreated and include oil, natural gas and coal. Learn more about where your energy comes from in this short film by National Grid.
