Oct 29, 2022
The top executive of one of the top energy suppliers in New England fears the region may not have enough power if a severe cold spell hits this winter.
Eversource Energy CEO and president Joseph R. Nolan Jr. recently wrote a letter to President Joe Biden, asking for his administration’s help in swiftly addressing the growing concerns about winter electric reliability in New England.
In his letter to Biden, Nolan said both the region’s electricity grid operator and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission worry New England will not have enough natural gas to meet power needs during a stretch of bitterly cold weather. Nolan called the situation a serious public health and safety threat.
