Good, Clean Solutions to Plant Washington and Dirty Coal

Wind on Buffalo Mt. Tennessee

Wind on Buffalo Mt. Tennessee

  • Energy efficiency can deliver 30% or more of the Southeast’s electricity.
  • Recent Georgia Tech Studies show we could meet ALL of Georgia’s energy demands through off-shore wind.  That does not include the huge potential for on-shore wind, solar, geothermal, wave, and tidal power.
  • Despite claims by Power4Georgians that Plant Washington is needed to meet soaring demand for electricity, demand is actually decreasing, and over the next 20 years is expected to rise only a modest 11 percent, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
  • Jobs for a clean energy future are here now. The federal stimulus package contains more than 8,000 clean energy jobs for Georgians. According to a recent analysis by Georgia Tech, only 79 local jobs will be generated by Plant Washington – or one job for every $26.6 million in costs. Energy-efficiency, weatherization and smart renewable energy generate six times more jobs than fossil fuel production.
