EPD Plant Washington hearing March 5, 2009On the heals of shutting down our nations capitol coal plant and 12,000 young people attending Powershift last week, Sandersville GA residents and friends of Washington County came together to voice strong opposition to the proposed Plant Washington power plant. The hearing last night gave direct democracy a chance to tell Georgia Environmental Protection Division and Power4Georgians that investing in a dirty fossil fueled future is not the right way for Georgia.

Around 300 people came last night and packed into an auditorium at Sandersville Technical College. During the Q&A many voiced strong opposition to the proposed plant. Of the 20 questions asked (though many more sought to have their questions answered) 15 were in opposition to the plant.

Just today, 2 more coal plant plans were dropped, 1 in Nevada and 1 in Iowa. A new record in our fight against dirty energy, 2 plants going offline! Hopefully we can build on this momentum and shut down Plant Washington. Please contact Rick LaTorra for more info on how to get involved.
