National Grid wants to liquefy fracked natural gas from other states in Providence. You can read more about this, and about why Rhode Island residents object to this liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility, here, here, here and here. If you also object to it, you can sign a petition to Mayor Elorza, Senator Whitehouse and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
You can also write to the FERC directly, and I encourage you to do so before October 26th. Here’s how:
At www.ferc.gov, use the eComment forms to send in your comment. You’ll need the project docket number, PF15-28-000. It’s in the CP Docket (Applications for Authorization to Construct a Natural Gas Pipeline, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) or Other Facility). It also asks for your name, street address and email address.
You can also mail paper comments to Kimberly D. Bose, Secretary, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First St. NE, Room 1A, Washington DC 20426. In your letter, you should refer to the project docket number, PF15-28-000.
The links above can furnish you with lists of reasons why the FERC should not approve National Grid’s attempt to build this facility in Providence, or anywhere. I hope you’ll add your voice to the objections before 10/26.
