Say No to Gas Turbine Plant in Ellwood, CA

Southern California Edison wants to rebuild a gas-fired power plant in Ellwood!

Our community thinks this is a bad idea because:

-It would be located less than 1000 feet from Ellwood Elementary School!

-It would create a heath risk because the plant would emit cancer-causing particulates. -The noise pollution would be as bad as a freight train running around the clock.

-The plant would cost ratepayers $32 million as a “stranded asset” if forced to close within 10 years due to excessive carbon emissions.

-It would not solve our local energy reliability or resiliency problems.

-We would prefer that SCE invest in renewable energy to meet our local energy needs! 

We need real solutions. Santa Barbara Resilient, Reliable, Renewable is a campaign of The Safe Energy Project and strives to create, store and distribute 100% renewable energy locally within five years, so that no neighborhood has to be a sacrifice zone for the sake of energy production.
