1. NYSERDA $250M Westchester Clean Energy Action Plan

NYSERDA, the Department of Public Service (DPS) and the New York Power Authority (NYPA) announced on March 14th a Westchester Clean Energy Action Plan.

The plan will provide immediate relief to Westchester County businesses and residents affected by Con Edison's announcement that it will put new applications for firm natural gas service on a waiting list beginning March 15.

2. Gas Boilers Banned after 2025 in the UK

UK Chancellor Philip Hammond has announced gas boilers will be banned from new build homes. The change will kick in starting in 2025 as part of measures to limit climate change. The Chancellor's announcement is seen as part of a Tory appeal to young voters.

3. Public Service Commission Adopts Geothermal Rates

On March 14th the NY PSC adopted the joint settlement in the Orange & Rockland rate case. The Commission created a new, lower electric rate available to residential customers who use geothermal technology, subject to certain technological requirements, and to other residential customers without qualifying geothermal units, capped at 500 participants during the three years covered by the rate plan.

4. US Responsible for 26% of GHG Emissions

When you can get conservatives and libertarians to admit that global warming is real, serious, and caused by humans, they seem almost always to point fingers at India and China. They should look a little deeper at what is going on at home.

See US Responsible for 26% of Global Warming Emissions to read the whole article.
