1. Sign our online petition to Stop the Eversource Springfield Pipeline and let Eversource CEO Bill Akley know you want it stopped!

Time is running out for getting off fossil fuels and switching to green energy to fight climate change. Eversource wants to build a costly, climate-changing, dangerous, and unhealthy gas pipeline through the streets of Springfield at ratepayers’ expense. Demand that Eversource withdraw this unnecessary project and invest instead in a just transition to clean, renewable energy.

2.  Lawn signs are available and being posted in Springfield right now to raise public awareness of the pipeline threat. Our dedicated volunteers can bring one and post it in your yard, or you may arrange for pick-up or home delivery at your convenience. If you would like a sign, please fill out our form at this link: https://bit.ly/SpringfieldPipelineLawnSign

We'll be in touch if you request a delivery or pick-up time.
