Urge AG Maura Healey to Say “No” to the Compressor Tax

National Grid, one of the buyers of the fracked gas running through Enbridge’s pipelines, wants to charge every gas ratepayer an extra monthly fee to cover the cost of the Weymouth compressor station, as well as their [National Grid’s] 14% ROI (return on investment).

 

It is outrageous for National Grid to force ratepayers to pay extra for a facility that they did not want or ask for, and for gas that will not be for local use (the fracked-gas that would run through the compressor station would be sent to Canada for international export).

This action is part of a week of action to shut down the construction of the Weymouth compressor station.
