Right now, corporate utility National Grid is
expanding a massive fracked gas transmission
pipeline in North Brooklyn. This project is not
a replacement of leaking pipelines, it is an
expansion to charge us, the rate-payers,
millions of dollars in rate hikes to fill their
shareholders pockets, and keep us locked into
fossil fuels when we want to move onto
affordable and clean renewable energy like
geothermal, solar, wind and energy efficient
National Grid’s goal is to complete the Bushwick
phase of the pipeline by the fall of 2020 and get
funding approval for Williamsburg and Greepoint
phase by March 2020.
Our goal is to stop this project and push Governor
Cuomo to mandate our Public Service Commission
invests our rate-payer dollars in renewable energy
and efficiency that is affordable and accessible to all
New Yorkers regardless of our income or zip code.
