LIPA Meeting Action / Rally & Testimony
10:30am Group Turbine Raising then March Giant Plugs into LIPA offices.
We will hold a demonstration of our support for a just transition away from fossil fuels and the rapid development of economical and readily available offshore wind for Long Island’s power needs.
Participate in this creative action at LIPA headquarters to create newsworthy visuals that provide great media imagery, as we collectively raise a “wind turbine” and brandish laughably oversized plugs as we invite LIPA to lead the way and “plug us in” to offshore wind!
Nassau Clean Energy Standard Hearing:
That evening on May 18th, Long Islanders will descend on the Clean Energy Standard hearing in Mineola to help spark a renewable energy revolution in the Empire State. It’s time for a renewable energy future in New York!
Governor Cuomo aims to have 50 percent of the state’s energy come from renewables by 2030. This new goal must be enforceable so it lives up to its promises and must include a specific commitment and path to large-scale offshore wind development that could create thousands of new jobs here on Long Island.
Additionally, the CES must apply to LIPA, as is proposed by the Public Service Commission, to ensure compliance and uniform standards for all NY power producers.
There are Clean Energy Standard Hearings also in Riverhead (5/17) and Far Rockaway (5/18) – we are not covering these, but we can get you the info if you need-just ask!
. . .
All Our Energy will host 2 meetings in the lead up to this, for public education to help you to testify at these events, and make artistic and logistic preparations for our May 18, 2016 Day of Action turbine raising and the props needed:
