Triage – HEET’s program to cut emissions from natural gas (methane!) leaks now

Shared Action Plan

The plan for HEET to verify Massachusetts gas utilities work to identify and repair natural gas leaks of “significant environmental impact.”  These are the 7% of all the leaks that emit half of all the gas by volume. 

Gas Leak Data

Gas companies in Massachusetts must report each year data about natural gas leaks, including their locations.  HEET extracts, cleans and maps this data and makes it available both as zoomable maps and as geocoded GIS data.

Gas Pipe Replacement (GSEP) Plans

Gas companies in Massachusetts are currently in the midst of replacing about a quarter of all the gas infrastructure through Gas System Enhancement Plans (GSEP) .  They report data on these plans annually.  HEET extracts, cleans and maps this data and makes it available both as zoomable maps and as geocoded GIS data.  

Transition – moving to clean renewable energy

Taste the Future Induction Cooking Parties

A key barrier to transitioning from gas to renewable energy is the stove. Although some residents don’t care about how their home or water is heated, many people believe that ‘cooking with gas’ is the best way to cook. Luckily, cooking with induction is significantly faster, more precise, and safer!
