Commentary: New York and New Jersey need affordable, reliable energy infrastructure


Mark Longo, director of the Engineers Labor-Employer Cooperative, a labor advocacy group that promotes economic development through infrastructure investment, writes: "In the aftermath of strong storms that left millions without power, residents are rightly wondering what New York and New Jersey are doing to keep the lights on. Unfortunately, policy decisions at the state and regional level won't safeguard the reliability of our energy systems. In fact, they may leave us with a more fragile, less secure grid — and imperil our residents, our businesses, and our economy.

"While it's worth exploring options like burying power lines in some high-risk areas to maintain stability, we have less costly tools at our fingertips to increase reliability. The region needs clean natural gas power to lower costs and provide uninterrupted service. Our policymakers must ensure our residents have access to the stable, affordable energy they need without breaking the bank." more
