Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo has proposed putting a second power plant in Burrillville, Rhode Island! The massive 1000 Megawatt Power Plant fueled by fracked gas and diesel oil proposed for Burrillville would result in the unnecessary industrialization of our rural region and neighborhoods. It would destroy hundreds of acres of pristine interior forest right next to beautiful recreational and conservation areas like; George Washington Park, Pulaski Park, Buck Hill Management Area, and more. The proposed plant would also introduce significant risk to our health and safety through the release of over 3 tons of Hazardous Chemicals and the potential to contaminate our water sources. The plant would also clog up our town and country roads with massive amounts of daily tanker truck traffic for Water, Diesel Oil, and Ammonia deliveries. Check out our facts page to learn more about the details and the negative impact of this proposed plant and download the up to date list of Cities, Towns, and Groups formally opposed to the plant.
To date 36 cities and towns in the surrounding area, every major environmental group, and a host of other organizations and leaders have all formally opposed the Clear River Energy Center power plant along with thousands and thousands of citizens. Please help us get the word out and educate people about the plant, the process, the impact, and the lack of need for this project.
