CarbonRight

Utah and Idaho customers will have a new way to significantly reduce their carbon footprint. CarbonRightSM is a voluntary program that offsets carbon emissions from natural gas use in a customer’s home or business. The program works by supporting projects in Utah, and other parts of the country, that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Dominion Energy CarbonRight: Your Path to Net Zero

CarbonRight is available to residential customers, businesses, government buildings and schools. To participate, you may purchase carbon offsets in $5 blocks on your monthly bill. A typical residential customer can offset their entire natural gas carbon footprint by purchasing one $5 block a month, achieving net zero carbon emissions from natural gas usage. Please see the full table below to see how you can offset the carbon emissions associated with your natural gas use.

To achieve net zero carbon emissions associated with your natural gas usage, you are encouraged to log in to your customer account to view your average usage.

There are several ways to enroll:

Large Residential 81-160 2 $10 $120

*A typical residential customer can offset their entire natural gas carbon emissions by purchasing one (1) block of carbon offsets. Residential homes using more than 80 dekatherms (Dth) of natural gas per month may choose to purchase two (2) blocks. To achieve net zero carbon emissions associated with your natural gas usage, you are encouraged to log in to your customer account to view your average usage.

How does this program benefit customers?

  • Impactful. Purchasing offsets supports emissions-mitigating projects that help reduce the effects of greenhouses gases on climate change.
  • Convenient. There is ease and convenience in purchasing offsets through your monthly gas bill.
  • Affordable. One $5 block a month can completely offset the typical home’s emissions from natural gas.
  • Local. It is Utah-focused program with a preference for locally or regionally based carbon offset projects when they are available.
  • Voluntary. The program is completely voluntary and will not affect your bill if you choose not to participate.
  • Verified. The offsets purchased are thoroughly vetted via third parties and can be verified through carbon offset registries.

Project type: Landfill gas capture/combustion
Name: Trans-Jordan Landfill
Location: South Jordan, Utah
Registry: Climate Action Reserve, Project ID: CAR400
CarbonRight portfolio total: 75%

When landfill waste decomposes, it produces greenhouse gas emissions. This project captures those emissions before they enter the atmosphere by installing a network throughout the landfill that gathers methane as it is emitted. After the methane is extracted, it is cleaned and used to generate electricity.

Project type: Landfill gas capture/combustion
Name: Maple Hill Landfill
Location: Macon, Missouri
Registry: Climate Action Reserve, Project ID: CAR521
CarbonRight portfolio total: 15%

When landfill waste decomposes, it produces greenhouse gas emissions. This project captures those emissions before they enter the atmosphere by installing a network throughout the landfill that gathers methane as it is emitted. This methane is then flared (burned). The emissions from burning the methane are much less potent than if the methane was allowed to escape into the atmosphere.

Project type: Forest carbon
Name: UPM Blandin Native American Hardwoods Conservation & Carbon Sequestration Project
Location: Grand Rapids, Minnesota
Registry: American Carbon Registry, Project ID: ACR212
CarbonRight portfolio total: 10%

This project manages a 75-mile radius of mixed native hardwood forest, which is managed with sustainable practices and will always remain forest through a conservation easement. This preservation allows for improved carbon dioxide sequestration as the trees remove carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, from the air. In addition, preservation of the forest protects water quality and wildlife.

Note: The projects supported by CarbonRight may change over time depending on the availability of carbon offsets.

CarbonRight is a carbon offset program that allows customers to voluntarily offset carbon emissions from natural gas use in their home or business by supporting projects reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

GreenTherm is a renewable energy program that provides customers an opportunity to support the production of renewable natural gas (RNG). Renewable natural gas is pipeline-quality gas produced from existing waste streams and a variety of renewable and sustainable biomass sources, capturing and using methane that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere.

ThermWise is an energy conservation program that promotes the use of energy efficient practices and rebates to reduce natural gas usage. The program offers Home Energy Plans in which a home energy expert visits your home to conduct a thorough home energy efficiency analysis. ThermWise offers rebates for energy-efficient appliances and weatherization improvements that are are available for existing homes, businesses and builders.

Carbon offsets compensate for emissions from one source, such as your home, by reducing emissions from another source, such as a landfill, so there is no overall increase in emissions. Carbon offsets are an effective tool used by people, companies and governments around the world to combat climate change.
Everyday activities produce emissions, such as driving cars, using electricity or heating our homes. This program allows you to offset certain carbon emissions—those associated with using natural gas—from your home by reducing carbon emissions from other sources.
A typical natural gas home uses about 80 dekatherms (Dth) of natural gas, which produces about 4 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions each year. A typical residential customer can offset their entire natural gas carbon footprint by purchasing one $5 block a month, achieving net zero carbon emissions from natural gas usage.
Everyone has a role to play in combatting climate change. Our company is taking bold and important steps every day to achieve our goal of net-zero emissions. This program is an easy way for our customers to join us on our journey and have a positive impact on the environment.

When a qualified carbon mitigation project is completed and reduces emissions from a source, the project developer can sell carbon offsets to a third party through a transparent and independently certified process. These carbon offsets must be independently measured and validated through rigorous standards put in place by carbon offset registries in order to ensure the emission reductions are real, accurate, permanent, and additional to what would be expected from normal day-to-day practices.

We purchase the offsets for this program through a competitive bidding process to make sure they meet the highest standards and provide the best value for our customers.

Participation in the CarbonRight program is completely voluntary. A typical customer can elect to pay a surcharge of $5 per block per month to completely offset their home’s emissions, or purchase more blocks to offset even more emissions. Participation may be cancelled anytime.
No. We do not make a profit from the program.
No. Customers who do not participate will not pay more for natural gas.
The offsets for this program are independently certified through a rigorous and transparent process by carbon offset registries. Reputable carbon offset registries include the American Carbon Registry and the Climate Action Reserve.
