In writing about the region’s gas moratorium, The Wall Street Journal this week prominently featured BCW member Allied Converters as well as the BCW’s concerns over a potential energy shortage.

In the article, John Ravitz, executive vice president and chief operating officer of the Business Council of Westchester, said more businesses are embracing environmentalism as a way of lowering energy costs. But he said the state needs reliable energy supplies in the meantime.

“We’re all in on renewables,” he said. “But it’s not going to get us where we need to be if we don’t expand the pipeline.”

The article highlighted Allied Converters’ efforts to reduce its environmental impact to save electricity and money. Richard Ellenbogen, president, installed solar panels at his factory, allowing him to sell about $21,000 in solar renewable-energy credits a year.
