Pledge to resisting Invenergy's billion dollar fossil fuel power plant proposed for Burrillville, Rhode Island and National Grid's toxic LNG facility proposed for the Port of Providence.
With key permitting decisions coming up for the power plant, and with the LNG facility recently being approved, now is the time to take action.
The town of Burrillville has been resisting fracked-gas infrastructure for thirty years and is already home to two major interstate pipelines, two fracked-gas compressor stations and a fracked-gas power plant. Invenergy's proposed power plant would burn diesel fuel and fracked-gas, spewing harmful toxins across the region.
National Grid's ligufied 'natural gas' (LNG) facility would be built in a community of color that is already inundated with toxic infrastructure, and that already has the highest rates of asthma in Rhode Island. Recently in this community there has been a major fracked-gas pipeline rupture, an ethanol train derailment and a gasoline tanker crash that caused a major spill. The LNG facility would put this community at greater risk of a dangerous accident and would lead to more negative health impacts.
In the face of relentless communitiy resistance, the power plant and LNG facility have been both delayed by years. But now it's time to stop these projects once and for all.
Once you sign this pledge to resist, organizers from The FANG Collective we will be in touch about next steps.
