Darren Suarez, our director of government affairs and an energy policy expert, sat down with Liz Benjamin of Capital Tonight, on Wednesday night to talk about several natural gas pipelines proposed throughout the state.
“When we have additional natural gas supply it helps to bring down overall electricity costs, and that helps all companies. That helps with all jobs, and that’s why we’re supportive,” Suarez explained.
The discussion focused on the Northeast Energy Direct Project, led by one of our members, Kinder Morgan. The project would connect parts of the existing Tennessee Gas pipeline system in New York and other states. Suarez also discussed the roughly 20 additional pipeline projects that are in varying stages of development around New York.
“We’re really going through a revolution in terms of our energy production and in terms of people’s choices for energy,” said Suarez.
