One thing to do before you leave for your Labor Day weekend ... please fill out this online form to the Sierra Club to urge the Governor to implement his promise for more renewable sources of energy here on Long Island.
Last year, Governor Cuomo promised an upgrade to our electric utility in Long Island, but it ignores the state's goal for a 30% clean energy target. At the same time, the plan, called Utility 2.0, continues reliance on natural gas and fossil fuels and antiquated, but cheap, transmission sources, such as our 80-foot chemically-laced poles.
More reliance on clean sources of energy, like solar and wind, means more independence for ratepayers from the stronghold of fossil-based fuels and the companies that profit from them.
Here is a link to the form: http://tinyurl.com/qcrdjub
Also, there is a Town of North Hempstead Board meeting on September 9th at 7:30 p.m. at the Town Hall on Plandome Road where they will be considering the "double-pole" & "penta-notice" legislation. They allow for public comment so we urge all those interested to attend.
Have a safe and happy last (unofficial) weekend of summer!
