Central Hudson Is Broken. Can New York Fix It?
At a May 13 “Make Shareholders Pay!” rally in uptown Kingston that Gillespie’s group organized, speakers called for change, including enactment of the Build Public Renewables Act. If passed, the bill would let the state-owned New York Power Authority expand its renewable power-generating capacity beyond the six generation projects it’s limited to now, and phase out its nonrenewable plants. “We want Central Hudson to be better, but let’s also push for a world in which Central Hudson does not exist,” said speaker Daniel Atonna of the advocacy group For the Many.
