Citizens for Clean and Fair Power - Campaign Kick Off Meeting

This group is trying to close down the  Bow/PSNH coal plant: 

PSNH’s coal-fired power plant here in Bow is damaging the health and welfare of communities.  The soot and smog from Merrimack Station lead to higher rates of asthma and heart attacks.

To add insult to injury, PSNH’s reliance on outdated, dirty coal plants is making customers right here in the Merrimack Valley, including Bow, Pembroke, Allenstown, Hooksett and Concord areas pay ever-increasing electric bills.  It’s time for PSNH to stop making us pay to pollute our air and water.

We can make a difference and bring clean air to the Merrimack Valley.  Come to our kick off meeting to find out how!
The Merrimack Valley should have breathable air and clean, sustainable energy that fits the scenic and unique character of the area.  Governor Hassan and our elected officials need support to go toe to toe with PSNH, a powerful company who has bullied New Hampshire too long for shareholder profits.

We can win and get these coal plants responsibly retired and plan for a smooth transition if we build enough public support- starting here on the Merrimack, where we’ve been burdened with the coal pollution for decades.  So please join us on Thursday night.  Join other concerned residents and local organizations to find out how to retire Merrimack Station and plan for our sustainable future. RSVP to let us know you can make it, and bring a friend!
