Group presents petition for hearing on program
Members of the National Fuel Accountability Coalition presented a petition recently in Albany to the state Public Service Commission, calling for a public hearing on the utility's customer-funded Conservation Incentive Program.
The group met with Commissioner Gary Brown, who indicated he would ask National Fuel to meet with the coalition. The coalition, including PUSH and VOICE-Buffalo, has urged more weatherizing of homes to lower customers' heating bills and create jobs.
