A free hearing to hear testimony on threats to the Connecticut River. 3:00-5:00
Join with others from our community to hear testimony from some of those most knowledgeable about and most affected by the operation of the Northfield Mountain Pumped Storage Station and its harmful and deadly affects on the Connecticut River and its ecosystem. This testimony will be heard by a panel of respected “judges” who will render findings based upon the testimony given. A short entertainment program will take place during the judges’ deliberations, after which the judges’ findings will be shared with those in attendance.
Northfield Mountain Pumped Storage Station, operated by FirstLight Power, creates and maintains a dead river, while at the same time using primarily fossil fuels to do so, never creating a bit of virgin energy. FirstLight buys low and sells high, thereby making huge profits for a foreign conglomerate at ratepayers expense. This event will allow the public to decide for themselves whether the Connecticut River and its ecosystem have the “Right” to live and thrive and whether FirstLight will be granted a “social license” to opera
