The Brooklyn Union Gas Company - Greenpoint Energy CTR

May 6, 2022 Update: The timeframe for DEC to issue a final decision on the permit application for the proposed Greenpoint Energy Center project has been suspended, subject to National Grid commencing and resolving a public proceeding before the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) to evaluate whether the proposed project is demonstrably needed for reliability purposes. Specifically, DEC and National Grid mutually agreed to further suspend the Uniform Procedures Act (UPA) timeframe in 6 NYCRR § 621.10 until thirty (30) days after the PSC issues a decision on a petition that National Grid intends to file for cost recovery as related to Vaporizers 13 and 14. This action is necessary to ensure the DEC has all the necessary facts, latest information, and outcomes of the PSC examination to render its decision. National Grid cannot commence construction of the project unless DEC approves the permit. DEC subjects every application to rigorous review of all applicable federal and state standards to ensure the decision is protective of public health and the environment, upholds environmental justice and fairness, and meets all strict standards in accordance with the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA).

Documents related to this permitting action (leaves DEC's website) may be found on the Greenpoint Energy Center website.
