Opinion: National Grid Has No Place in NYC’s Climate-Resilient Future
National Grid supplies gas to 1.8 million customers in New York City and Long Island. In the city, they provide gas for home heating, cooking, and hot water only. They are not licensed to provide energy in New York City, only gas. If New York City is to have a climate-resilient future, National Grid should not exist here.
