On Thursday 7/15 MMWEC asked the Mass DPU to move forward with the peaker project proceedings as of 7/29. While we are very disappointed with MMWEC’s decision, our partner, Mass. Community Action Network (MCAN), will be filing briefs with the DPU on the 29th as well as most likely responding to MMWEC’s filed briefs on 8/5. We will be discussing our next steps to stop the plant at our next meeting – scheduled for Tuesday, 7/27 from 6:30-8:00 pm.
Registration link coming soon – check back!
In the meantime, we will be continuing our efforts to educate as many people as possible about this proposed dirty peaker, and push for an alternative, clean solution to this proposed dirty fossil fuel generator in Peabody. We are also working to change the existing regulations that continue to promote dirty fossil fuel power plants over cleaner, alternative, renewable power plants and energy storage solutions.
If you’d like to get involved send an email to email@example.com!
This is a comprehensive analysis of Project 2015a as it stands today, looking at true costs, renewable alternative costs, and explains why “The proposed peaker power plant in Peabody is unnecessary, harmful and costly“
Breathe Clean North Shore members attended and spoke as part of the agenda at the regular public meeting of the Peabody Municipal Light Plant on Thursday night June 24th 2021. The PMLP commissioners answered our questions and agreed to have ongoing conversations regarding future plans and to make more of an effort to inform the public of their ongoing projects and plans.
