Action Needed by Friday, Nov. 6: Tell the PSC, “Invest in a 21st-century energy system, not outdated and expensive power lines!”
Your Action Now is Critical
Contact Gov. Cuomo, PSC—new research shows no need for damaging power lines project.
|In September, a highly respected energy industry firm—London Economics International—released findings that forecast a steep decline in electric transmission congestion for the Mid and Lower Hudson Valley regions. Its report builds on previous work by physicist Dr. Gidon Eshel that confirms what public and environmental advocates have said all along: There’s no need for 150 miles of expensive and environmentally damaging power lines to be built through New York State.
Now, PSC staff has issued a recommendation to proceed without demonstrating need, instead switching to a vague “public policy” rationale that contradicts other strong, established state policies. Even worse, the staff recommendation calls for eliminating the proposals that the Hudson Valley Smart Energy Coalition and PSC determined would have the lowest impacts to communities and key resources.
Join us in telling the PSC that new transmission lines are not in the public’s interest! Every voice counts! COMMENTS ARE DUE BY FRIDAY, NOV. 6!
