We urge them to use their authority to help halt all plans to expand the "Algonquin" Gas Pipeline and to pay for it by leveling a tariff on New England gas sales. We need clean, community owned energy, not more fossil fuel infrastructure.
Why is this important?
Spectra Energy operates a natural gas pipeline, the "Algonquin", that travels through New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. Here in Burrillville, a compressor station increases the pressure of the natural gas passing through the pipeline. The compressor station currently spews toxic pollutants into our air and water, generates horrendous amounts of noise, and lowers our property values, but Spectra wants to expand the compressor station so that more gas can pass through the pipeline! This will worsen all of the existing problems, including increasing the risk of explosions. Moreover, much of this gas will likely be exported abroad, raising the price we pay here in the States.
