Local town boards should stop opposing Lighthouse Wind
As an individual and as a volunteer leader of Mothers Out Front on the local, state and national level, I heard with sadness that the Galloo Island Wind Project’s application (located at the eastern end of Lake Ontario in NY) was withdrawn.
Clean green energy is the only way we will be able to transition off fossil fuel and curb the climate change that is endangering every living thing on earth. The withdrawal of this application makes it even more important that the Lighthouse Project goes through. The project will produce at least enough clean power to power 50,000 homes.
I feel it is time for the involved town boards to stop opposing this project and start to negotiate a deal that will benefit our towns the most while allowing us to participate in transitioning to a cleaner, healthier earth for ourselves, our children and future generations.
