Gas Infrastructure Has Big Impacts on New England Energy Marketplace
It appears that failure to built infrastructure that expands import capacity of either electricity or natural gas leaves New England vulnerable to extreme price spikes and even reliability issues on high peak demand days. New England is hoping a combination of new technologies and end-use customer market participation can be a valid substitute for large infrastructure projects.
