Keep It In the Ground: No Natural Gas Power Plant in Rockland



Join 350 Maine and our Extreme Energy and Solutions Team, in association with Renew Rockland, at an upcoming forum related to a natural gas power plant in the city of Rockland.

Consistent with the need to “Keep It In the Ground” related to the extreme energy choice of natural gas (neither cheap nor clean), we call on 350 supporters – and all Mainers – to attend the forum to show opposition to further fossil fuel infrastructure development.

See Renew Rockland’s (Facebook Page) materials related to the event including the NO Power Plant Bike Ride announcement and a shareable sheet of flyers.


WHAT: Rockland Natural Gas Power Plant Forum – and Bike Ride

WHEN: Wednesday, August 19 @ 6:30 p.m. Gather for the Bike Ride @ 5:30 p.m.; depart at 5:45 p.m.

WHERE: Rockland City Hall, 270 Pleasant Street, Rockland. Bike Ride: meeting in the middle of Harbor Park parking lot (in the big grassy island area); we’ll ride down Pleasant Street to City Hall (it’s a short 7 minute ride)

HOW: Let’s confirm our commitment to renewables and solutions and keeping fossil fuels in the ground. Please bike with us if you can…and consider carpooling (see this coordination link).

NOTE: the primary intent of us gathering together in Rockland is to support area residents in opposition to this infrastructure development. The plan is to fill the room to slow down what the City Council seems to feel is an inevitable choice (see press reports below) – despite the needs of many in Rockland and across the state...and the environmental realities we all confront!
