Jubilation! We hope the cancellation of the $8 billion Atlantic Coast fracked gas pipeline will soon be followed by a move by both of these corporations to stop building gas-fired generation, and to begin replacing all existing coal- and gas-fired power with the cheaper, more reliable approach: renewables matched with storage and energy-saving and balancing programs.

We are really happy for all the people targeted by the pipeline and the great number of groups working for six years against the ACP.
