Activism for people and planet! Thank you! It is time to wean ourselves off fossil fuels and transition to clean energy and a sustainable economy. This should include job transition/carryover pay for those affected.

Honk for $500 electric bills and moving back into the stone ages of cuttnig and burning wood which is far more polluting. Electricity from natural gas conversion has the lowest footprint of all forms of hydrocarbon conversion and carbon capture technology is here and real. But who needs to move forward?

This plant does not necessarily meet CT needs. It’s backed by a Florida based company whose mandate is 7 years old and outdated at this point since it does not meet the state’s emission reduction goals. The Sierra Club is firmly opposed as it threatens environmental habitats. Killingly already has an almost 800 mega-watt gas power plant !
