Coalition Letter to Congress Supporting use of CHP in Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Efforts

Dec 12, 2012

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, more than eight million people along the eastern seaboard lost power, and many residents of affected communities have been forced to seek shelter and warmth elsewhere, unable to utilize public transportation, fuel their own vehicles, or attend work. Also without power, many manufacturers and other businesses have been unable to maintain operations, leading to idle factories and lost sales. While there has not been a complete evaluation of the cost of the storm and its effect on power supply, it is estimated to be in the tens of billions of dollars.
