Moratorium on Hookup for National Grid Customers to be Lifted in 2019

national gridHYANNIS – National Grid plans on ending a moratorium on new hookups and expansions of existing service in April 2019.

The moratorium was put in place after National Grid approved work on a $50 million project to replace the 18-mile main gas line on the Mid-Cape and Lower Cape.

The moratorium has been in place since October 2014 and affects around 30,000 customers in Brewster, Dennis, Orleans, Eastham, Harwich, Chatham and parts of Yarmouth and Barnstable.

Engineering plans for the project should be complete by the end of the year, then permitting will begin while the design phase could take up to two years.

The project was previously estimated to finish in 2021.

“We’ve taken this project very seriously, we understand how important it is for our future customers to be able to start connecting new folks and be able to increase the amount of natural gas that people are using, so we’ve really fast tracked it internally here,” said National Grid spokesman Jake Navarro.
