Article of Interest: Con Edison imposes gas moratorium in Westchester County

Posted: January 22, 2019

On Friday, Con Edison officially imposed a moratorium on future developments and contracts in Westchester County, citing the lack of natural gas sources which are partly obstructed by the state’s firm opposition to pipeline expansion.

Some local leaders are concerned about how this moratorium will effect their communities, particularly in cities like New Rochelle and Yonkers that are currently redeveloping their downtowns. This moratorium highlights the need for natural gas development throughout the downstate region, particularly with the closure of Indian Point just two years away.
