Join our NYC press conference to demand that Governor Hochul protect gas customers and push to pass the NY HEAT Act (S.2016A/A.4592A) this year!
Elected officials and advocates will gather outside the Governor's Manhattan office building to demand passage of the NY HEAT before the end of session. The bill will cap energy bills at 6% for low- and middle- income families, saving them an average of $75 per month.
These households are the most impacted by volatile gas prices and high energy bills, paying three times more of their income on energy bills than other families. On top of that, the NY HEAT Act will save local families big by ending the 100-foot rule which forces every day New Yorkers to subsidize the expansion of the gas system – a price tag that amounts to $200 million annually.
With utilities proposing rate hikes just in time for what’s bound to be a scorching summer, lawmakers must pass NY HEAT to make energy more affordable for all families. The NY HEAT Act will also enable utilities to invest in clean, neighborhood scale electrification projects rather than spending more money to expand the climate crushing gas system.
