In the Matter of Astoria Gas Turbine Power LLC
Climate and Energy Justice, Environmental Justice, NRG Astoria, News
On September 15, NRG applied to sell the land under the peaker plant to an offshore wind developer, and to withdraw from the DEC permit process – a major victory for Queens and Bronx communities and for the transition from fossil fuel peakers to renewable generation that our coalition seeks statewide. This further solidifies precedent for DEC’s authority to deny permits for peaker plants that are inconsistent with the CLCPA mandates.
This action is the culmination of years of advocacy from community members, environmental justice and climate organizations in the No Astoria NRG Coalition and the PEAK Coalition, of which NYLPI is a member, along with elected officials and community leaders who oppose the polluting and unnecessary development of a new gas-fired power plant in Astoria, Queens.
