Energy! What does it mean to people and how does it help us throughout our day? Enbridge’s energy infrastructure has helped fuel quality of life in Wisconsin for 70 years. The pipelines deliver the products that heat homes and businesses, fuel vehicles and power industry across the state.
Life takes energy: to heat our homes, to feed our families, to fuel our vehicles. Did you know that one barrel of oil can produce about 20 gallons of gasoline, 12 gallons of diesel, three gallons of jet fuel, and just over seven gallons of other products? It’s hard to think of things that don’t require the use of energy. Even people living off the grid need fuel for generators. Electric vehicles have plastic components in order to stay lightweight for efficiency. Shipping anything from hospital supplies, to grocery items requires energy.
Crude oil is refined into petroleum products that are used to create the items that help us make the most of Wisconsin’s seasons.
Here are a few more activities you do every day that require energy:

As a company, and as individuals who live and work in communities across Wisconsin, Enbridge wants to make Wisconsin communities safer, healthier, smarter, greener, more enriching, and more inspiring.
Enbridge places a high value on quality of life in their communities. Enbridge invests in programs, organizations, and initiatives that focus on health and safety, environment and community. Enbridge’s Emergency Responder Education Program equips first responders and 9-1-1 dispatchers with the essential information they need to respond in the unlikely event of a pipeline incident, through free, unlimited, online training. And through their public awareness programs, Enbridge engages in an open dialogue with their neighbors in the communities near their projects and operations, providing pipeline safety information to the people who live and work along their pipeline routes.
