Long Island Energy Plans

The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) released its energy plan for Long Island in June of 2004. This plan covers the period from 2004 to 2013. In 2002 a coalition of regional environmental organizations released a draft citizens' energy plan for the region.

Issues of energy production and consumption are vital to the future of Long Island and the nation. The decisions we make now will impact our economy, environment and national security for years to come. We are urging LIPA to make a greater commitment to alternative, renewable environmentally friendly energy sources such as wind and solar.

You can see the plans online. The enviromentalists' plan is at www.seali.org, and LIPA's plan is at www.lipower.org/projects/energyplan04.html.
