This video explains why New Yorkers should come together to fight the bailout for nuclear reactors that is happening in NYS right now and has been going on for the last year or so on a path to the tune of $7.6 billion dollars over 12 years.
NYS energy ratepayers, that’s nearly every household throughout NYS, is subsidizing these nuclear energy corporations on their monthly bill and will continue to do so for 11 more years unless they are stopped. This video represents one of the environmental groups that has launched a legal action to stop it and this is their outreach to us.
From Their Campaign flyer:
When the Public Service Commission circumvented the law for proper public comment we took them to court. The New York State Supreme Court ruled in our favor in an Article 78 proceeding that our case to repeal the handouts could go forward because their decision was arbitrary and capricious. This was despite Exelon and Entergy’s big legal spending and New York State deceptively positioning nuclear power as part of the “Clean Energy Standard,” alongside solar, wind, geothermal and other renewable energy sources. There is nothing “clean” about nuclear power. From uranium mining to generating nuclear waste and every step in between, nuclear power is dirty, dangerous, expensive energy. That’s why they can’t make it in the free market that we have for electricity.
