Neil Waggoner, Sierra Club Beyond Coal Campaign organizer is putting out the word to folks in Dayton and SW Ohio…,
The DP&L bailout hearings are scheduled for two public meetings on September 27, 2016 at Dayton City Hall. One meeting is at 3 p.m. and another is later the same day at 6 p.m.
Dayton City Hall is located at 101 W. Third St. Dayton OH 45402.
DP&L is seeking money from taxpayers to pay for old power plants. With renewable energy such as solar and wind already replacing coal power in many places in the Midwest, like northern Indiana, the Sierra Club is working to organize a movement toward solar and wind. Coal power is dangerous to miners, dirty to the atmosphere where it’s known to contribute to climate change and global warming. Coal power is expensive also. The capital return on the investment to utilities can be beneficial to them and those who use alternative sources of power; some market analysts say solar power can be as inexpensive as 5.5 cents per kilowatt hour.
Join us at Dayton City Hall on September 27th and be a part of a movement that stops tax money for coal plants! More information is available at our Facebook page for this event at https://www.facebook.com/events/1063291723791400/
