National Grid is currently in the process of modernizing their gas system. They are replacing 585 miles of aging pipes in New York City and Long Island before the year 2020. National Grid is investing $3 billion to replace these aging pipelines; in doing so, they are creating more jobs, developing energy efficiency programs, and are working with the NYC Clean Heat program to help assist buildings in converting to natural gas. The conversion of these buildings is then helping reduce particulates, mercury, and sulfur within New York City's air.
The business will also benefit from modernizing itself since it will ultimately increase capacity and improve connections to renewable energy sources. When a company focuses on its customers, the community, and the well being of the environment, the business will most certainly benefit without a doubt. National Grid has developed a positive, good-for-the-world image that about 7 million customers choose to be a part of when deciding who to turn to for these services.
