Representatives from NYSLOF attended a community hearing in Brooklyn about Williams’ Northeast Supply Enhancement project.
The Northeast Supply Enhancement project will provide additional gas supply to National Grid – the largest distributor of natural gas in the northeastern United States. National Grid estimates that with the added capacity provided by the project, natural gas could displace the equivalent of 3,005,797 gallons of heating oil, reducing CO2 emissions by up to 2.4 million tons per year.
Recent cold weather and subsequent heating issues at New York City Housing Authority residential complexes underscores the need for heating system upgrades. National Grid is investing more than $200 million per year to convert their customers from oil to natural gas in New York City and Long Island. The Northeast Supply Enhancement project is critical to make these conversions possible. Go HERE to learn more about the NYCHA heating & hot water crisis.
