“Natural gas plays the role of 24/7 power; it’s there whenever you need it. And the renewables are obviously zero carbon and increasingly more economical as their costs continue to come down. Natural gas will play an important transition role. That role will change over time. I expect it will have a larger role early in the transition and then, as we get out into the 2050 timeframe, we’ll probably see less generation from natural gas and more from renewables. But it plays an important role helping us make the transition in a way that works for the pocketbooks of our customers.”
