The New York State Department of Public Service and big energy companies are trying rewrite our energy future (this includes the future of renewable and clean energy - like solar and wind) in New York without our input. We need them to slow the process down so that the people can have a say in their energy future.

Join us for a community/region wide forum as New York State energy regulators will be in Buffalo NY for 2 special sessions to talk to you - the public. #EnergyDemocracy

There's 2 sessions - 2PM-3PM & 3PM / 6PM-7PM & 7PM
Each session begins with an hour of public comment.

Buffalo and Erie County Main Public Library Auditorium, 1 Lafayette Sq, Buffalo NY
