Eversource Leaves the American Gas Association to Focus on ‘Decarbonization’ 

– Miriam Wasser - WBUR – “New England's largest energy utility, Eversource, has parted ways with the American Gas Association — a powerful industry group that environmentalists say has been instrumental in blocking efforts to address climate change around the country. Eversource spokesperson Chris McKinnon told WBUR that the utility canceled its membership with the group in early 2022 as part of a broader, strategic effort to prioritize ‘decarbonization’ and reduce planet-warming emissions. Eversource’s departure appears to mark the first time a major utility has left the influential gas trade group over diverging climate agendas, a move some energy experts call ‘unprecedented’ and say could be a harbinger of things to come." Tip from Allison at the National Building Electrification Network and Sunstone Strategies.
