Call to Action: Help Long Island Secure a Clean Energy Future
LIPA is reviewing energy proposals to satisfy growing energy demand on Long Island's East End. LIPA is considering fossil fuel burning "peaker" plants and unsightly transmission lines to meet this new energy demand. However, proposals for clean energy solutions such as solar and offshore wind power are also on the table. Hundreds of people have already written a letter asking Governor Cuomo to encourage LIPA to choose clean energy instead of fossil fuels.
Show your support by submitting a copy of the letter here. It takes less than a minute of your time.

5 PM Rally; 6 PM Hearing
Join us at the hearing to demand an energy plan that includes offshore wind, which is crucial for meeting Governor Cuomo's ambitious but attainable goal of 50% of the state's energy coming from renewables by 2030. The plan is to rally nearby at 5 and then pack the hearing room with tons of New Yorkers ready to speak their voice.
