Governor Cuomo has committed to "double down by investing in the fight against dirty fossil fuels and fracked gas" in his 2017 State of the State Address. So why is he committing to building a new fracked gas power plant in an Environmental Justice neighborhood to power the Empire State Plaza, the symbolic building of New York government? New York State should use our resources to solve the transition to renewable energy for a healthy climate, resilience and empowered communities. Not further burden people with 30 more years of polluting fossil fuels in our backyard.
We have the solutions! Sane Energy is working to make sure the efforts we work toward with our Renewable Heat Now coalition campaign, that Governor Cuomo and the New York Power Authority can double down by investing in a proven renewable solution!
