The Engineers Labor-Employer Cooperative (ELEC) represents nearly 7,000 Local 825 operating engineers and the signatory contractors who employ them. ELEC focuses on promoting economic development, construction projects and investments in infrastructure.

 The proposed Northeast Supply Enhancement (NESE) is a perfect example of the type of infrastructure investments that are so important to ELEC. NESE has the potential to put thousands of construction professionals to work, generating millions of dollars in new wages in addition to the millions of dollars in economic activity revenues that will occur during the one year construction phase.

This kind of investment in energy infrastructure will attract businesses and other commercial investors to the region by ensuring access to the natural gas. It also will provide reliable, affordable, clean energy to more than 2.3 million homes daily. This project is crucial to our region as natural gas demand is at an all-time high.
