Connecticut residents who would like to learn more about Governor Dannel Malloy’s energy plan are invited to attend a forum March 1 at the West Hartford Public Library.

The Connecticut Chapter of the Sierra Club, Food and Water Watch, and 350CT will present “Next Steps in the Pipeline Fight.”

The topic is the proposed expansion of the NED gas pipeline to be constructed through the Hartford MDC watershed lands, and across part of the scenic New England Trail.

There are numerous challenges to his plan to make natural gas the most common fuel for electricity and home heating, according to the local Sierra Club.

The governor's goal of increasing natural gas use in the state by converting, at ratepayer expense, hundreds of thousands of buildings to natural gas is falling short of its objectives, the club stated.
