Take Action Against Duke Energy’s Cliffside Power Plant

imageThe North Carolina Division of Air Quality (DAQ) has announced its intent to issue and air pollution permit to Duke Energy for its proposed Cliffside power plant. The last thing North Carolina needs is another filthy coal fired power plant. Pollution from the Cliffside Plant damages our health, the environment and is a significant contributor to global warming. If you’re concerned about your health, clean air, clean water, and your children’s health, the time to act is now!
It’s not too late to stop the new coal fired power plant. You can help by submitting written comments about your concerns to the DAQ and requesting that the DAQ hold public hearings across the state regarding the Title V permit.
Requests for public hearing must be in writing and include a statement supporting the need for a hearing.
The public comment period ends October 30, 2008.
Please submit your comments and request for public hearing to:
Michael Gordon, Division of Air Quality

Raleigh, North Carolina 27699-1641
