Petitioning GenOn CEO Edward R. Muller

Close the Portland Generating Station


GenOn Energy’s Portland Generating Station is a 60 year-old coal-fired power plant on the Delaware River directly across from New Jersey. This plant is making residents of both Pennsylvania and New Jersey sick. In Pennsylvania, its toxic coal ash sits in an improperly lined and under-monitored quarry, placing the community at risk for mercury, arsenic and lead poisoning.

In New Jersey, the plant is responsible for more sulfur dioxide pollution than all the coal plants in New Jersey combined.  The sulfur dioxide created by this plant worsens health problems like asthma and heart disease. The EPA wants the plant to clean up its act and install modern pollution control technologies. Meanwhile, the plant’s owner, GenOn, wants more time, flexible pollution targets, and a renewed lease to continue polluting. Let’s tell GenOn to shut down this plant before it damages our environment and health any more.
