Liquid Natural Gas Usage

The Commons Coop research and service group has recently been studying the usage of natural gas in the Vermont Commons School. We received the records of the CCFs used by month since September of this year, and calculated the CCF usage by month. As natural gas is used by the heating system in the school, it was expected that usage would rise during the winter months, and sure enough it did. However, the total CCF produced a grand total of about 130 lbs of carbon—or about 5 more trees. If we were to significantly reduce the amount of natural gas we (the school) used, then it would not be all that beneficial to our project.
