Con Ed plans renewable gas, LNG storage facilities amid pipeline constraints

Consolidated Edison on Wednesday proposed a slate of gas projects and programs aimed at addressing rapidly-growing demand in New York City and Westchester County, which the utility says requires a new pipeline to serve the region's energy needs.

The utility wants to invest $305 million to fund efficiency incentives for customers and the development of up to three renewable gas facilities that would turn food, yard and other waste into natural gas.
