Kinder Morgan formally withdraws federal application for Northeast Energy Direct pipeline

“The office of Attorney General Maura Healey issued a statement Monday saying Kinder Morgan's Northeast Energy Direct pipeline was ‘too big and too costly’ for Massachusetts ratepayers. ‘Our office continues to argue that electric ratepayers should not foot the bill for natural gas pipelines,’ wrote an AGO spokeswoman. ‘Now that Kinder Morgan has officially pulled the plug on the NED pipeline, Massachusetts should continue to refocus its energy future on where it needs to be by investing in clean and cost-effective energy resources.’”
