CT’s natural gas expansion plan well behind schedule

Connecticut’s multibillion-dollar plan to convert 280,000 properties to natural gas heat by 2023 is far behind schedule, though it’s still created tens of thousands of new customers for utilities. Connecticut has set ambitious greenhouse-gas emission reduction targets, with milestones approaching in 2030 and 2050. Natural gas generally burns cleaner than oil, so getting more customers to use that heating fuel would reduce carbon dioxide emissions by a greater amount.
