Facing the growing movement against the Puente power plant, the California Energy Commission (CEC) is holding an extra round of hearings in Oxnard to do a deeper review of the issues surrounding the project.
Join us at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center on July 26th– rally at 5pm, public comment begins at 6pm– make your voice heard!
For three years, Oxnard residents have been fighting this short-sighted polluting project that continues a long legacy of environmental racism. The project is now nearing a final decision.
But the tide is turning in our direction! We have the momentum, this is our chance!Growing statewide and national media attention:
An investigation exposing that California has an oversupply of dirty power plants:
8 state legislators including the Senate President writing a letter to the CEC to stop the project:
The CEC approving a study on how this power plant could be replaced with renewable energy alternatives:
Join us to tell the CA Energy Commission to stop making Oxnard a sacrifice zone for polluting power plants! With some of the highest rates of asthma in the state, we deserve clean air! Oxnard’s 85% people of color population has been the target of environmental injustice for too long.
This project would never be proposed on the beaches of Santa Barbara or Malibu. We need to get power plants off our coast, which is vulnerable to flooding from sea level rise.
The Oxnard City Council, County Supervisor Zaragoza, State Assemblywoman Limon, State Senator Jackson, and Congresswoman Brownley all unanimously oppose this project. Yet NRG is continuing to force it on our community.
It’s 2017: we have clean renewable energy alternatives that would supply the same power while creating more jobs at a lower cost. It’s time to end this injustice now!
