Actions you can take now!

1 - Tell the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MDEP) not to give clean energy credits (CECs) to nuclear-powered electricity generators which came online prior to 2010. MDEP came to this conclusion earlier this year, but in response to industry pressure, they are now reconsidering.

Written comments were due by November 30th, but...

maybe not (there's some indication of a Dec 7 date!)

It MAY not help, but you have nothing to lose by...

continuing on:

Previously owned by Entergy, Fitzpatrick, a reactor very similar to Pilgrim in upstate New York, was unprofitable and scheduled to close in 2016. But when New York state decided to give Fitzpatrick CECs, it became profitable, Entergy sold it to Excelon for $110 million, and it's now scheduled to close in 2034. If MDEP proceeds as planned, Pilgrim could operate until 2032!

Sample email that you can easily send.

2 - Take Action (there's a prepared message here for you to send) to establish a cleanup standard for decommissioning Pilgrim Nuclear that will protect the Commonwealth. Without a Massachusetts standard, the NRC will decide what's clean enough.

4 - Direct your friends to this page!   Thank you.
