The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that one kilowatt-hour (kWh) produces 1.52 pounds of carbon dioxide. This number is excluding line-losses, which means the CO₂ emitted is actually much greater due to inefficiency of power transmission. The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) states that the average energy electricity consumption for a U.S. residential utility customer is 10,932 kWh annually. Conservatively, the average U.S. home produces (1.52 pounds X 10,932 kWh) 16,616.64 pounds or 8.3 tons of CO₂ emissions annually. The table below shows potential CO₂ Off‐Set with our ET‐PGS©.
In 2012, the EIA estimated one gallon of gasoline produces 19.6 pounds of carbon dioxide. Customers can now feel less guilty about driving their cars with fossil fuels as their investment in an ET-PGS© will dramatically assist in off-setting all of the CO₂ emissions worldwide from Industry, Transportation, Vessels, Power Generation, etc. The table below presumes a vehicle with an average of 20 miles per gallon.
