Cuomo Orders National Grid to Restore Gas Service October 14 2019, 0 Comments

National Grid faces millions of dollars in fines and must immediately provide natural gas service to 1,157 customers who were denied it as part of a moratorium declared by the company as it seeks state approval for a contested new gas pipeline.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced the measures on Friday afternoon as part of a preliminary finding by the state Public Service Commission, which is investigating the veracity of an impending gas shortage declared by the company and complaints by thousands of customers awaiting gas service. "National Grid has acted in bad faith throughout this process," Cuomo declared in ordering the company to restore or provide service to those deemed eligible under state public service law.
