Tonight is the final public hearing about the fracked-gas power plant that Invenergy wants to build in Burrillville. If you live in Rhode Island and can go, please do. Bring a sign opposing the plant. If you’re not a resident of Burrillville, you may not be able to get a spot to speak, but be there and show your opposition.
There are other hearings (dates at the link above) where the public can attend but won’t be allowed to speak.
Doors open at 5pm tonight and it’s expected to be crowded, so getting there at 4:30 if you can might be good.
TONIGHT (Tuesday), October 10th, 6-10pm
Burrillville High School Auditorium, 425 East Avenue, Harrisville, RI
We can’t afford any more fossil fuel infrastructure. A lot of people, I know, support this because they are hungry for construction jobs, and so making sure that Rhode Island develops jobs and training in renewable energy and energy efficiency construction (with something like the Energize RI bill) is an essential part of taking care of Rhode Islanders in the short term as well as the long term.
