Governor Cuomo wants to increase our electric bills to bail out old, unprofitable nuclear power plants.

The tax will cost hard working New Yorkers nearly $8 billion dollars. Our money will go to plant owner Exelon, a Chicago-based Fortune 100 company with annual revenues over $34 billion.


The Governor says it’s about preserving jobs and fighting climate change, but we know better. New York’s energy future lies with energy efficiency, smarter grids, solar and wind. These approaches cost less, provide more jobs, and result in healthier communities.


Nuclear energy is costly, dangerous and bad for our health and environment. By joining California in phasing out nuclear power, New York can help lead the nation into a 21st century renewable energy future.

New Yorkers deserve better. Join us, and stop the Cuomo tax.
