Don’t let NorthWestern Energy be the Grinch that stole Laurel!
NorthWestern Energy is recklessly pushing forward with construction of a methane-fired power plant in Laurel, Montana. This project creates financial risks for energy customers while threatening our health, air quality, and climate. Montanans deserve a fair, reliable, and sustainable source of power that protects the people and places we love. The time to act is now!
Rally to the Stop the Greedy Grinch
Tuesday, December 13th
11:00am to 12:30pm
Townsquare Park (11 1st Ave, Laurel, MT) Holiday cookies and hot chocolate provided! Attendees are encouraged to brings signs, and remember to dress warm!
This holiday themed rally at a busy Laurel intersection will help draw the public’s attention to this important issue, NorthWestern Energy’s disregard for the local community, and pressure the City of Laurel to take action and demand NorthWestern Energy stop construction without proper zoning changes in place.
NorthWestern has repeatedly cut residents out of the decision-making process as it pushes this project forward, evading public input at every turn. In an act of blatant disregard to the local community and its own customer base, the corporation is ignoring zoning laws, building an industrial project on an area zoned exclusively for agricultural use.
We hope you can join us!
If you haven’t done so already, please sign onto our letter to NorthWestern Energy demanding that they stop construction of this destructive, polluting plant!
