County Legislators Urge NY Gov. To Halt Sheridan Ave Fracked Gas Plant, Seek Clean Energy Instead

"A spokesperson for the Cuomo administration told WAMC "NYPA announced further study on this two weeks ago." Albany County Legislator Merton Simpson, co-chair for SHARE, the Sheridan Hollow Alliance for Renewable Energy, hand-delivered the proclamation. "Well we don't wanna hear about studies. We wanna hear about a specific request for proposals. The information that we provided the governor gives a number of actual programs throughout the world where geothermal options have been used, from St. Patrick's Cathedral to the Nashville Airport. Right now, one of our major mentors and consultants is working with NYSERDA to develop projects all over New York state that actually use geothermal options. So the real question is 'Why is it that there are some places in the state that are doing what's right, but in communities of color, they're willing to do what the governor says he's against,' which is fracked fossil fuels, but they actually have a proposal which they said they're gonna look at alternatives, they're gonna consider alternatives. We don't want that kind of vague language. We want a concrete commitment to do what's right."

"Dunlea fears the proposed microgrid would cause the Empire State Plaza to rely on natural gas produced from fracking for at least 90 percent of its electricity and 100 percent of its heating and cooling for years. "It would basically commit this low-income neighborhood to another 30 years of having gas burned in their community. We think we can do a much cleaner alternative, and if the governor is serious about moving away from burning fossil fuels that he should be using the Empire State Plaza as a model."
