For Immediate Release: January 3, 2018

ALBANY, N.Y. – ““New Yorkers for Affordable Energy applauds the Governor’s commitment to address energy prices and provide direct cost relief for low-income New Yorkers. For New Yorkers facing brutal cold this winter, access to affordable energy is a critical and immediate need. Unfortunately, projects that could address constrained natural gas infrastructure and provide good paying jobs for union construction trades have been slowed by an uncertain regulatory process. While the state transitions to new sources of energy in the decades ahead, it is imperative that we continue to ensure reliable and affordable access to existing energy sources for the millions of New Yorkers struggling to heat their homes this winter.”
