Tell the Governor and the Public Service Commission that a subsidy for failing nuclear reactors is a bad idea. Attend a PSC hearing on May 17 in Albany and you will be in good company!
The Indian Point Safe Energy Coalition, New York City Safe Energy Coalition, Sierra Cub, Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Alliance for a Green Economy, Nuclear Information Resource Service, Beyond Nuclear, and more all agree. Subsidies for failing nuclear reactors have no place in the Clean Energy Standards or anywhere else. Tell Governor Cuomo and the Public Service Commission that they are just plain wrong.

Democracy is not a spectator sport. Emails and online comments count. What counts even more are a lot of people at the Public Service Commission meeting listed below. The first hour of each meeting is information from the Commission about the new standards. The second hour is your chance to tell the Commission that subsidies for nuclear power subvert the Clean Energy Standards and will make people pay more their electricity. Nuclear power is not cheap or carbon free and it’s certainly not clean. Renewables can play a much larger role than this plan gives them credit for. We have plenty of power from existing generators, plus transmission improvements, efficiency, demand response and conservation.
The Governor seems to think that no one in Southern New York will notice or even care about how he is imperiling our state’s opportunity to be a leader in the clean energy revolution. If New York uses clean industry standards to prop up failing reactors, other states are sure to jump on the bandwagon. Take your comments to Albany so that Gov. Cuomo will see that we care. Come to the hearing on May 17. Speak out and be counted among environmentalists who know better and are willing to fight to reform the energy vision for our state so that we all have clean and green electricity.
