Nuclear energy -neither clean nor safe, but back on East Bay Community Energy Board’s Agenda on Dec. 16

Nuclear is Back on East Bay Community Energy Board’s Agenda on Dec. 16  https://www.sierraclub.org/san-francisco-bay/blog/2020/12/nuclear-back-east-bay-community-energy-boards-agenda-dec-16   December 15, 2020  By Melissa Yu

Tomorrow, December 16th, at 5:00 PM, the East Bay Community Energy (EBCE) board will vote on whether or not to accept nuclear energy from PG&E, with the aim of re-selling it to a third party.

EBCE, Alameda County’s public power agency, exists to provide more renewable energy to its customers and reinvest its earnings back into the community to create local green energy jobs, local programs, and clean power projects.

Nuclear energy is not safe or clean. The Sierra Club remains unequivocally opposed to nuclear energy and encourages the decommissioning of nuclear power plants. We oppose even the buying and selling of nuclear power.

Time and time again we’ve fought to keep nuclear out of EBCE’s power content. Simply promoting nuclear in another form does not make it acceptable — even for slight financial gains.

We urge you to join us in asking the Board to reject this latest proposal. Let’s make sure EBCE stays cleaner and greener than the incumbent utility.

The meeting agenda, speaker sign up, and Zoom link will be posted and updated here. Sometimes these meetings can be long. If you would like us to text you when the agenda item is being discussed, please message Melissa Yu at melissa.yu@sierraclub.org.
