Rally in Hartford on Tuesday, Oct. 24, 4:30pm at 56 Prospect Street

Protest the practices of Eversource and UI/Avangrid, who claimed gas pipelines were full although they were not, and as a result of these completely legal "artificial pipeline constraints" cost ratepayers an extra $3 billion over three years.

Join CT Sierra Club, 350 CT, Consumers for Sensible Energy, No Fracked Gas in Mass and other allies at this protest, and help us amplify the message to the public, the media, state leadership, Eversource and Avangrid that duplicitous utility company practices hurt consumers, raise energy prices and invalidate the demand for public investment in expanded fracked gas infrastructure.

Increased fracked gas pipelines ARE NOT NEEDED. We have said for years that the pipelines are not operating at capacity and this new EDF study supports that.

Eversource, Avangrid artificially constrained gas pipeline capacity for years, report argues : http://link.utilitydive.com/news/eversource-avangrid-artificially-constrained-gas-pipeline-capacity-for-yea/507018/
