Join 350CT members in calling for the retirement of Connecticut’s last coal-fired power plant! 

On Monday, CT Dept. of Energy and Environmental Protection will hold a hearing to decide whether to renew PSEG’s expired operating permit for the Bridgeport Harbor Station.  The outdated 44-year old coal plant lacks the proper pollution safeguards, and it’s a major source of soot, smog, and greenhouse gases.

Join other 350CT members at the hearing where we will call on CT-DEEP to refuse the permit renewal, and we’ll call on PSEG to retire the Bridgeport plant and revitalize the community.

PUBLIC HEARING
Date: Monday, May 14, 2012 at 6:30 P.M.
Location: City Hall Annex, 999 Broad Street, Bridgeport.

Mini-rally/Briefing/Gathering

At 6:15PM in front of the City Hall Annex, 350CT is organizing a mini-rally + briefing on the hearing + group photo.  If you have a 350CT t-shirt, please wear it to the hearing and show our strong presence!  (We'll have some you can buy on Monday, too, if you're interested...$15/each)

Carpool

350CT has arranged a carpool from New Haven down to Bridgeport for the hearing.  Meet at 5:30 PM in the Wilbur Cross High School parking lot (181 Mitchell Drive, near the intersection with Foster St) in East Rock.  If you’re willing to drive, please email laura...@gmail.com.  Directions and more info will be provided. 

If you’re outside New Haven and would like to carpool, email laura...@gmail.com, and she will try to match you with others in your area going to the hearing.  (In the email, list your town, and whether you are willing to drive). 
 

The hearing is so important to this campaign – we hope you’ll be a part of it!
