Help us stop the proposed coal plant by showing your opposition at these two hearings in Surry County. These hearings are our best chance at putting a stop to Old Dominion Electric Cooperative (ODEC)’s plan to build what would be the largest coal plant in Virginia.
ODEC tried to go around the concerns of the community before. We can’t let that happen again. Sign up today and let us know if you can make it to one or both of these upcoming hearings. Your attendance at these hearings can make the difference and help stop this dirty plant in its tracks.

Virginians voted for legislators who promised to put people back to work, get the economy moving, and make our state the best place for a child to receive an education. Instead of focusing on the issues that affect Virginia’s working families, the Virginia General Assembly has focused on far-flung conservative social agenda.
On Tuesday, Feb 14 join us in Richmond as we tell our legislators that they’ve broken our hearts!
There is a very important meeting this week regarding the Rt. 5 Corridor Study. This is an important opportunity to voice your thoughts and to help guide this decision in the most favorable way for the future of this part of our City. There are currently two proposed alternatives, both of which have room for improvement.
We hope you will join us on Monday, Feb 13 to express your views on this very important issue!

The Surry County Planning Commission has scheduled a new public hearing for Old Dominion Electric Cooperative’s proposed coal-fueled power plant from 7 to 10 p.m. Feb. 27 in the Surry County Government Complex. The original hearing was declared void after five county residents won a lawsuit alleging that the community was not properly notified of the Dendron Town Council’s intent to vote immediately after the board’s February 2010 public hearing.
