Holland, MI Event: Pizza And Energy Update

BY ON August 24, 2012

Holland, MI officials want to hear your thoughts on a new energy plan. Earlier this month the Holland Board of Public Works (HBPW) released its long-awaited Sustainable Return on Investment study, showing a heavy reliance on natural gas — not clean energy — for Holland’s future.

Please join Moms Clean Air Force for pizza and discussion, and find out how you can advocate for clean energy in Holland.

Pizza and Energy Discussion

WHO: Fellow Clean Energy Advocates and You!

WHAT: Pizza and updates for residents in Holland

WHEN: Tuesday, August 28th, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

WHERE: Herrick District Library, 300 S. River Ave., Holland, MI

The HBPW will be holding a public comment period on September 4 & 5 and we are calling on parents who want clean air for their children to voice their concerns about the energy plan before a decision is made in October. HBPW’s plan calls for a new $182M natural gas plant, with little investment in clean energy sources. Even worse, they’ve projected for heavy demand without first trying to maximize energy efficiency.

Let HBPW know that Holland deserves a world-class energy plan that looks to the future of clean energy and renewables. Let’s not rush into a decision only to look back in regret when we are still burning natural gas on downtown Holland’s waterfront 25 years from now. Clean Energy ultimately means clean air and healthier children.
