ALBANY, N.Y. – “New Yorkers for Affordable Energy is pleased the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), has determined that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) waived its 401 certification authority because it failed to act in a timely manner on Millennium’s application. Millennium has demonstrated that the project would meet the strictest of environmental standards, while at the same time providing needed access to natural gas. It is vital for New York’s economic wellbeing and overall competitiveness that natural gas projects be allowed to move forward”.
