CCE APPLAUDS GOVERNOR CUOMO'S COMMITMENT TO CLOSE INDIAN POINT, REDUCE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS IN TODAY'S STATE OF THE STATE

Statement by Adrienne Esposito, Executive Director:


“Shutting down Indian Point closes a doorway to danger and opens the pathway for large scale renewable energy. This aging nuclear plant must be shut down before harm comes to the public and to our environment. The plant closure is simply good common sense and good judgment. This news, combined with the Governor’s push to reduce the RGGI cap, sets forth a plan to help secure a cleaner, more sustainable energy future for all New Yorkers.”
