From our friends at 350NYC: New York State is creating a “Master Plan for Offshore Wind”. They are coming to New York City to share information and get our input on the plan at three events and we want to show up in large numbers at all of them.
Monday, August 14th @ 6pm – 8pm in Queens Library at Penninsula, 92-25 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, Rockaway, NY 11693 , tinyurl.com/WindInfoRockaway
Tuesday, August 15th @ 6pm – 8pm in St. George Library Center, 5 Central Ave, Staten Island, NY 10301 tinyurl.com/WindInfoStatenIsland
Wednesday, August 16th @ 6pm – 8pm in New York Aquarium, Education Hall, 602 Surf Avenue at West 8th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11224 tinyurl.com/WindInfoConeyIsland
These locations all suffered greatly during Superstorm Sandy and we want to get the word out to people in these communities about these events. So please attend one of these sessions – RSVP at the Facebook links above, and share info with your friends.
Kick-off Session at Rockaway
The first info session at Rockaway will include a Press Conference and Rally at 5:15pm, before the info session begins. We will have windmills and banners, and great speakers, so please join us for this important opening event.
We are looking forward to welcoming NYSERDA, learning all the great things they are up to add renewable generation to our grid and asking questions about how this will affect our lives, and the lives of those around us. This is an important step in the transition to a clean energy economy and we need to make sure our voices are heard.
This link provides some FAQ’s that will be covered. Feel free to bring more questions that are not covered on this sheet, and make sure to ADD YOUR COMMENTS about what is important to YOU either at the event or online. The deadline to make comments is August 31st, 2017
HOW TO GET THERE: Best travel info is from the MTA Info site. Gives subway & ferry times.
If you want to travel with us to the Pre-Rally and Press Conference at Rockaway @ 5:15pm on Monday, August 14 meet at 3:40pm at 59TH ST – COLUMBUS CIRCLE on the south-bound A platform, at the front of the train.
