LIPA and PSEG Integrated Resource Plan Public Meetings June 21 and 22, 2017

LIPA and PSEG are poised to go with renewables and not build the 5 billion dollars in new shale gas power plants that were proposed… this is pretty huge!

This week’s hearings are crucial! We would love to have you come down Wednesday June 21 or Thursday June 22 for the LIPA and PSEG “Integrated Resource Plan” (IRP), public hearings on the next decade of our electricity system. Our future needs you there!
We need as many people as possible at the 6/21 1PM hearing in Smithtown, where the media will be. We are also focusing on the 6/22 evening session in Mineola (Details on all is Below)

Here is our quote for the press release:
“As a triumph in the fight against climate change and a bold move to economic and efficient renewables, we applaud the Integrated Resource Plan” said George Povall, Director of All Our Energy. “Saving billions of dollars in unnecessary fossil fuel plants, and avoiding their pollution is just smart, and LIPA should invest now in even more cost conscious, climate saving off shore wind to make that a reality.”

Climate Summit

What a great turnout, at a beautiful location, during a historic moment at the Long Island Climate Resistance Summit! So many new friends and such an inspiring day!

A special THANK YOU goes out to our volunteers – Ann, Karen, Joanne, Gary, and Susan (pictured here with me) for helping make it such a success!! Thank you to all who attended, and to our partner organizations who made the day such a success. We met so many new people we know are ready to take action to fight climate change on Long Island.

Thanks to all who took part in our discussion and had so many great questions and answers at our Community Solar workshop.
