New York has proposed a 16 megawatt fracked-gas power plant to be built in the Sheridan Hollow neighborhood of Albany to serve the Empire State Plaza (ESP) and other government buildings. The plant would burn fracked gas, which is a major cause of the climate crisis and is known to cause serious health risks including respiratory disorders and cancer. It is inexcusable to expose the densely populated, people of color neighborhood and adjacent downtown Albany to toxic pollution. And it is inexcusable to build a new fossil fuel power plant as the climate crisis worsens. Renewable energy solutions do exist.

We call on Governor Cuomo and Gil Quiniones to stop the Sheridan Hollow fracked gas power plant and use the funds dedicated to this project to make our state capital a national model for renewable energy. Immediate steps also must be taken to reduce toxic pollution from the existing steam plant and backup generators on Sheridan Avenue.
