National Grid & Going Green
New York currently has TWO major utility companies: ConEd and National Grid (formally known as Keyspan) ConEd has control of storage and distribution of natural gas and oil for Manhattan, Bronx, parts of Queens and Westchester. National Grid has control of Staten Island, Brooklyn and a small part of Queens. In recent efforts to push eco-friendliness, ConEd has launched a "Going Green" program. Due to deregulation, natural gas customers can now choose the SOURCE of their natural gas. Through ConEd's new program one may choose from a variety of environmentally friendly sources such as hydro-power or biogas! This switch results in almost no cost difference but has significant environmental impact! What's the Problem National Grid is not currently participating in this program, and is showing no effort to launch a "green-power" program! What Can We Do As Staten Island residents it is our duty to voice our environmental concerns loud and clear! Support your community on Staten Island and sign our petition!
