PSC Approval of West Dryden Road Pipeline Alternative

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

The Legislature learned that the State Public Service Commission has unanimously approved NYSEG’s compressor proposal to address energy and economic development needs as an alternative to the proposed West Dryden Road natural gas pipeline.

At tonight’s meeting, Caroline Town Councilmember Irene Weiser reported on the PSC decision, which came in response to local initiative out of the County’s Energy and Economic Development Task Force. NYSEG’S compressor solution will place four pressure boosters at strategic locations along the existing gas distribution system to ensure operating pressure in the Lansing service area stays at safe operating levels during very cold, high-heating-demand days, expected to be installed in time for the 2018-19 heating season. The Legislature had voted unanimously to support NYSEG’s compressor proposal, and Tompkins County Area Development had also supported the plan.
