PETITION #NoKeeneGasPlant: http://bit.ly/2rHGwnq

June 15, 2017

🔸 No Keene Gas Plant: Call & Email Mayor Lane today!

MAYOR LANE may not know the consequences of a fracked gas plant in Keene. In fact, he seems to think he can say no to a pipeline after he creates the need and means for one. Did you know that Kinder Morgan was looking at Vernon VT or Hinsdale NH to build an industrial gas plant? Hey, Keene just happens to be on that pipeline route and now, a willing victim.

 

ECHO Action testified in Washington, DC at the National Press Club in December along with other pipeline organizations against the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's #FERCabuses. We're helping others to fight what Keene is welcoming in!

 

The temporary gas plant will provide fuel for the Monadnock Marketplace. Once approved, Liberty Utilities will seek approval for a permanent gas plant and Mayor Lane wants to get the City of Keene on gas. Liberty Utilities offers cities a 10% reduction in fuel rates and raises rates on their other customers. The gas industry currently has a glut (excess of gas) and are selling way below normal rates. Businesses will pay to convert, the rate will go up and as we rapidly move to renewable energy, they will be forced to pay to convert again. Businesses should be saving money and serving the community by converting to heat pumps and renewable energy now.
