Hartford, CT – “In the words of Yogi Berra, it's 'déjà vu all over again' at the state capitol this year. Once again the legislature is resorting to a budget-balancing gimmick used repeatedly in previous years that hurts electric ratepayers, kills jobs, and harms our environment.

Power plant pollution in the Northeast would decline by more than 20 percent in the next decade under a plan announced on February 7th by environmental regulators and energy officials from 9 Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states.
Hartford – Environment Connecticut released a new Environment Connecticut Research & Policy Center report today that shows that New England’s current power generation from wind energy avoids 720 tons of smog-causing and 1,370 tons of soot pollution annually, a significant benefit for public health in Connecticut, a state heavily affected by air pollution.
Coal and natural gas-fired power plants pollute our air, are major contributors to global warming, and consume vast amounts of water—harming our rivers and lakes and leaving less water for other uses. Wind energy has none of these problems. It produces no air pollution, makes no contribution to global warming, and uses no water.
