National Grid News Release (June 30, 2021):

Today, National Grid issued its Natural Gas Long-Term Capacity Second Supplemental Report that reaffirms the company’s commitment to achieving a Net Zero carbon future, while supporting a safer, more reliable and cleaner energy system for the nearly two million customers who rely on the service to heat their homes and power their businesses. This report provides an update on the short and long-term energy needs of downstate New York customers, reviews the status of targeted solutions identified by the company in 2020, and emphasizes the importance of ensuring that no customer is left behind during the transition to a net zero future. The report also outlines the near-term critical infrastructure needs and incremental demand-side programs necessary to meet energy demands, while highlighting the real possibility that additional supply infrastructure projects beyond those needed in the near-term could prove unnecessary if New Yorkers work together to reduce gas usage.
