For Immediate Release: January 12, 2018

“New Yorkers for Affordable Energy applauds Constitution’s persistence in the development of this needed project. The recent string of extreme cold weather led to natural gas prices spiking to all-time highs throughout New York and New England and shows exactly why projects like the Constitution pipeline are desperately needed. This project would create jobs, and be built by New York’s skilled, highly-trained workforce using the latest technologies aimed at promoting the safety of the environment and workers. Natural gas must be part of the mix if we are going to continue to provide businesses and homeowners with the energy they need.”
