Our fight against this fracked gas pipeline proposal was begun late in the process due to the paucity and limited nature of National Grid’s pipeline announcements. It predicts to earn the required certificate to begin construction of this fracked gas pipeline by the end of this summer.

Consider submitting public comments to the NYS Public Service Commission, the lead agency, by going to: http://documents.dps.ny.gov/
Some of the comments are by pro pipeline forces who are sweeping aside the many non pipeline alternatives in the name of progress.
National Grid’s pipeline justification is to prevent an energy shortage, which, indeed, has never even occurred. Another rationale is to meet a projected increase in “energy demand of 1.1% per year which is easily met by very attainable “demand response” reduction measures such as use of renewables, conservation and efficiencies.
Public officials of Albany or Rensselaer county or residents of Bethlehem, East or North Greenbush, have a right to register as an “intervenor” to obtain “party status” with the NYS Public Service Commission. This would entitle one to “special rights” from the Public Service Commission.
