Information

National Grid issued its Natural Gas Long-Term Capacity Supplemental Report for Downstate New York. The new report supplements the Company’s original Natural Gas Long-Term Capacity Report, which was released on February 24 and outlined 10 possible long-term natural gas capacity options for the future. Taking public feedback and comment into account, the Supplemental Report refines forecasts and data sets, and presents recommended solutions. This will be used to identify an agreed long-term solution with New York State by June 2020. This timeline will enable the solution(s) to be in place and in operation by the winter of 2021/2022.

Our long-term solution options

National Grid has issued its Long-Term Natural Gas Capacity Report fulfilling a provision of the Company's November 2019 agreement with New York State. In that agreement, National Grid committed to researching and publishing a report that offers potential long-term solution options to address downstate New York’s recognized natural gas constraint issues.

Voicing your opinion

The Company held six public and virtual meetings in March, to provide the public and our customers with an opportunity to review each of the long-term gas capacity options, ask questions of subject matter experts, and make public feedback statements. The transcripts for the public meetings are available via links on the right. These meetings were attended by more than 800 people, who made 258 public comments.

There was also an equal opportunity to express your opinion during the comment period between February 24 to May 1, 2020 by completing a survey on this site or providing feedback directly to the state of New York. Altogether, more than 7,000 public comments were filed with the New York Public Service Commission (PSC).
