On Friday, in response to PennEast’s request for FERC to expedite project review, EELC renewed its own request to FERC for a hearing on the proposed Project. EELC represents New Jersey Conservation Foundation and Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association, who oppose the controversial PennEast Pipeline because it has not demonstrated any public benefits. Many others agree – including the New Jersey Division of the Rate Counsel.
EELC Senior Staff Attorney Jennifer Danis: “As FERC now has a quorum re-instituted, we’re asking that, rather than just pull the trigger on a certificate with such a shoddy record, they grant our motion for an evidentiary hearing and take a really hard look at whether there’s any public benefit for the project.”
