Energy Strategy Encourages Natural Gas

Governor Malloy has unveiled the final version of the state’s energy strategy.

He says the aim of the  plan is to provide cheaper, cleaner and more reliable energy for state residents and businesses,  partly by encouraging conversion to natural gas. The plan includes a tax credit for homeowners who install gas service.

The plan seeks to have 50%of  residential customers and 75% of businesses make the switch to natural gas in the next seven years.   Malloy says at present, natural gas is available to 30% of Connecticut energy consumers —  compared to  48%  to 50% in Massachusetts and Rhode Island and 70% in New Jersey.
