Philadelphia Gas Works emails show involvement in drafting bill that runs counter to climate goals

Devin McDougall, Attorney, Clean Energy Program, Earthjustice: “These emails reflect efforts by PGW to expand SB 275’s preemptive scope and add teeth by expressly bringing in more types of energy services, drawing from similar bills supported by the American Gas Association in other jurisdictions. It should be of great public concern that PGW has been working to expand and strengthen SB 275 in a way that is not consistent with being a neutral observer.”

Joint Comments to NY DEC: Opposition to the Draft Title V Air Permit for Greenidge Generating Station

The enclosed comments are neutral as to the cryptocurrency industry and to blockchain technology innovation. The comments are focused solely on the harmful impacts from large, fossil-fueled energy generation systems that mine proof-of-work cryptocurrency 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to the detriment of the local community and the climate. The new, huge amounts of GHG emissions from the proof-of-work mining operations at the Greenidge Facility is a significant threat to the state’s and nation’s transition to clean energy that is urgently needed to prevent the worst impacts of climate change on our communities and local economies.
