Free Webinar: Exploring the Impact of LNG Exports on Pennsylvania Families - March 15

Please join the Pennsylvania Utility Law Project, Public Citizen, and the National Energy Assistance Directors Association for a free informational webinar entitled Exploring the Impact of LNG Exports on Pennsylvania Families on Friday, March 15, 2024 from 12:00 PM-1:00 PM Eastern.

In 2022, the cost of home energy skyrocketed – squeezing Pennsylvania households and businesses and falling hardest on low income families across our state.  But why?  One big contributor: Record exports of liquified natural gas (LNG) from the United States to Europe in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.  

On January 26, 2024, President Biden announced a temporary pause on the Department of Energy’s review of applications to build new LNG export facilities. During this temporary pause, the Department of Energy will re-examine the standard it applies when reviewing whether to approve new LNG export facilities to ensure increasing levels of LNG exports are not harming energy affordability and security here at home.  Since the announcement, there has been a rush to judgement – some lauding the decision for advancing environmental justice, others claiming the decision puts jobs and energy security at risk.  But what does this “pause” really mean for Pennsylvania?

The program will explore what every Pennsylvanian needs to know about the pause on LNG exports, what it means for Pennsylvania families, and the steps ahead as the federal government reviews this critically important standard.
