Imagine calling the gas company and being told there is no gas available for your building.
This is exactly what is happening with Con Edison in a suburb north of New York City.
Con Edison, the region’s main utility, says its existing network of pipelines cannot satisfy an increasing demand for the fuel.
There is an ample supply of natural gas in the United States but according to industry officials, opposition to building or expanding interstate pipelines has caused delivery challenges in the Northeast. Two counties in western Massachusetts have had a moratorium on new gas hookups since 2014.
Some believe this is a stunt by Con Ed to cause New York State to approve some pipeline expansion; if so, they could face serious consequences.
