SOLAR, WIND, AND MINING PROJECTS

​We're building a database of solar, wind, and mining projects that are proposed, under review, or approved but not yet constructed. 

And we're doing what we can to try to stop them.
 
Join us, and others, in doing the same.​​

1

Sign up for email updates on projects. This will alert you to public comment periods.

Here are two boiler plate letters that can be used for public comments or to write directly to POCs, affected landowners, public officials, and other interested parties.

2

Engage with state energy departments to try to change rule making on renewable energy portfolio standards.

Stay abreast of legislation in your state that would fast-track solar and wind development. Request to give public testimony as bills are debated.

3

Partner with an attorney, and locals directly affected by projects, to oppose approval decisions.

4

Connect with groups opposed to projects and offer our informational resources, namely The PallasCeres Report, our Through the Eye of a Needle article, and our Resources page.
