Dear PSC Commissioners:

We are community based organizations, local businesses and concerned residents of New York City who are urging the New York State Public Service Commission to approve the Champlain Hudson Power Express (CHPE) contract.

The CHPE is the only permitted and ready-to-go clean energy project that can deliver our community reliable renewable energy by 2025 to begin displacing toxic fossil fuel power.  It is also the only project that will deliver baseload electricity all-year-round to firm up solar and wind energy that only produces when the sun shines and wind blows.

Fossil fuel prices are painfully volatile and CHPE, thanks to its fixed long-term contract, will protect not only our family and friends from air pollution but also our pockets from price spikes.

Climate scientists and clean energy experts resoundingly say that the time to act is now on climate change.  Don’t be cajoled into thinking that another project might magically be able to replace CHPE.  Any alternative project will come in-service later and be more costly because of rising interest rights, inflation, supply chain constraints and permitting.

We love our Queens neighborhoods. The families, the local businesses, the schools for our kids but we do not love the pollution, fossil fuels and price spikes. 

If the NYS is serious about transitioning to a green grid the CHPE is a fundamental piece.  We call on you to approve the CHPE contract without delay and to do the right thing for New Yorkers.
