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).

Customer Assistance Programs
We know that many of our residential and small business customers were inconvenienced as a result of being denied natural gas service last year. We have Customer Assistance Programs for those who experienced financial hardship as a way to help. If you submitted a completed application for gas service between May 15, 2019 and October 11, 2019, you may be eligible for a bill credit and other financial assistance. Please review our programs by visiting https://www.nationalgridus.com/gasconnect-assist. And also visit our Consumer Advocates table at the upcoming public meetings for more information and assistance with these programs.
