End for Westchester Moratorium? April 29 2019, 0 Comments

On April 24, 2019 Con Edison announced an agreement with the Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, LLC, the owner and operator of the interstate natural gas transmission pipeline system, to provide additional natural gas to the utility's Westchester County service area. This could end Westchester's natural-gas moratorium, but not until late 2023, according to Crain's New York Business reports.

In order to be prepared for this, two compressor stations in New Jersey and one in Pennsylvania would be upgraded to increase the gas supply to southern Westchester County by 110,000 dekatherms per day, according to public filings.
