To meet the challenges of tomorrow, we have to address the growing energy needs we face today. The Atlantic Coast Pipeline will make our region energy sure by connecting us to the nation’s largest supply of affordable, cleaner-burning natural gas. Increased access to natural gas will play a major role in driving down the cost of energy, with savings that can be invested back into the local economy and create jobs. Reliable access to this cleaner energy supply will also improve our region’s air quality, as well as our energy security — so we can be sure we have the energy we need when we need it most.
So why is this pipeline needed now? Our region’s demand for energy is increasing, supply is restricted and new federal regulations will reduce our capacity to generate power. Older coal are scheduled for retirement — reducing our region’s capacity to generate electricity. However, these retirements give us the opportunity to replace older facilities with newer, cleaner-burning natural gas power plants.
