Still no movement from LS Power

It's been a while since the last update, because not much has been happening. Community Energy Solutions has been quietly, persistently getting its message out at community meetings, at work, at church, with legislators, everywhere we all go. LS Power's proposal is bad for Waterloo, bad for Iowa, and bad for the world. We can do better.

So far, no applications have gone to the state agencies that must act on the proposal. The Waterloo Courier has published some good articles about new statements from LS Power and questioning the need for this plant. We've dug in for a long process of debate and education. When everyone has all the facts about coal plant pollution, global warming, energy alternatives, and everything else we've been researching, we're confident that the right decision will be very clear.
