Rising natural gas demand meets no new gas pipelines… Here is the EIA:

”Con Edison estimates that, by the winter of 2023–2024, its firm pipeline contracts will meet only 78% of its peak-day demand absent any new pipeline capacity. However, no remaining firm pipeline capacity is currently available into New York City or Westchester County, and recent attempts to add pipeline capacity have stalled as a result of regulatory challenges. Con Edison is now planning alternative measures, including DR, to reduce reliance on interruptible contracts and to help ensure all its customers are served on the coldest days of the year.”
