Natural Gas May Be Maine's Best Alternative

October 18, 2018 Media Mentions

On the morning of Verrill Dana's 6th Annual Natural Gas Conference, hosted in partnership with Pierce Atwood, the Bangor Daily News published an article, "Natural gas touted as best alternative while Maine looks to renewables," highlighting the conference and the importance of natural gas for electricity generation and home heating. In addition to including comments from Senator King's video address during the event, William Harwood was also quoted multiple times within the article.

"Natural gas has become a big player in the energy world in both New England and Maine during the past 20 years," said Senator King. "Natural gas is at the forefront of an energy revolution and energy transformation in this country."

Further into the article, Bill explained, "Maine initially was getting a lot of natural gas from a line that runs from Sable Island through Nova Scotia and then through Maine from Calais to Bangor to Augusta and to Portland. Another line runs from Montreal to South Portland." He added, "it makes sense now to tap and possibly expand geographically closer lines from northeastern Pennsylvania, which is rich in the Marcellus shale that contains natural gas."
