Stop Grayson

We are now in the final stretch of the campaign to stop the Grayson gas plant. On April 10, 2018, the Glendale City Council will meet to decide whether or not to proceed with the project. We need to make sure they set it aside and launch a study of clean energy options. And we need your help to make this happen.

When: Tuesday, April 10, 5:30pm 

Where: Glendale City Hall, 613 E. Broadway, Glendale, CA

Click here to RSVP for the April 10 rally and Council meeting.

If you’re new to this issue, the City of Glendale is evaluating options for “repowering” its aging natural gas power plant at the Grayson power plant, and considering a 250 megawatt combined cycle gas plant.

The proposed plant raises several serious concerns, posing a big risk for Glendale rate payers, overestimating the useful life of the plant, underestimating the cost of cap and trade permits, and downplaying the declining trajectory of prices for renewables. The plant also poses a direct risk on the immediate environment in and around Glendale and on our shared climate.

We need all of you – EVERYONE – to show up for a rally to show the City – once again – that we will not have it! Over 500 people came out at our last rally. We expect to beat that this time. Your friends and neighbors are coming out, and you should, too.
