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.
