No LNG

There’s plans to develop a liquid natural gas (LNG) processing and storage site in Philadelphia. It’s dubbed the Passyunk Energy Center. Read our take on it here: The Passyunk Energy Center? Just Say No!

Despite rousing public opposition to the project, the Philadelphia Gas Commission voted to OK this project. Read our perspective here: Resistance to the proposed Passyunk Energy Center.

Though the Philadelphia Gas Commission voted to proceed with this project, it still needs City Council to deliberate and vote on this.

Read about, and view, the public hearing on February 27th, 2019. You’ll find our testimony against this project.

Citizens keep showing up at City Council sessions, reminding them that this is an unwanted, and unneeded,  project. View our testimony on March 14th, 2019, on March 21st, 2019, on March 28th, 2019, on April 4, 2019, on April 11, 2019 and most recently on May 2, 2019.

All this means we get another chance to show public opposition when the entire council gets to vote on this.

Please call or tweet any & all of the Council members listed below, stating that you oppose this project, bill# 181063.
