North Tonawanda

Energy companies are phasing down the use of fossil fuels, but, in the absence of neighborhood opposition, these facilities may find new life with off-grid uses. Such would have been the future of the former Fortistar gas-fired peaker power plant if the neighbors in North Tonawanda had not voiced their opposition to the reuse of this facility as a Bitcoin mine (ie, a computer server farm for generating Bitcoins.)

Clean Air supports the residents of North Tonawanda in their opposition to the sale of the Fortistar facility to Digihost Technologies, and will continue to fight for a Just Transition for all fossil fuel based infrastructure.
