Berkshire Gas DPU Hearing - Greenfield

The Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities will be holding a Greenfield Hearing for Berkshire Gas’ Long-Range Forecast and Supply Plan regarding Berkshire Gas’ for their five-year forecast for 2016/17 through 2020/21.

Even if you're not from Berkshire Gas moratorium-affected territory but just care about preventing gas infrastructure over-build,
please come to this Greenfield hearing!

We need numbers to come and tell Berkshire Gas to serve customers by:
1) fixing their leaks!
2) helping their current customers save money by helping them weatherize and insulate.
3) address peak demand planning by fully utilizing previously approved storage facilities

Berkshire Gas should not be granted any pipeline expansion until these conservation methods are fully addressed first. They should also not be allowed to continue a moratorium once capacity is freed up by gas saved by these methods.

Less loss & less waste means more available for others without that pesky, environmentally damaging need for more pipelines!
