Keep Charles City County Beautiful. No Gas Plants!
Concerned Citizens of Charles City County (or C5) was formed in June 2019.
C5 works to inform and educate county residents of issues facing the county. This group was formed in response to the multiple power plants proposed for the county--with limited involvement from residents.
THE GAS PLANTS
Two gas plants have been proposed for the Roxbury Road corridor in Charles City County, and while one project was cancelled in July 2021, another project is fully permitted and under development, with plans to be operating by 2022.
“The fight against Chickahominy Power gas plant demonstrates what is at stake for all of us, starting with the frontline community whose well water is directly under threat and who will be near to the 6.5 million tons of greenhouse gases emitted annually from the plant. . . . After stealing our water and poisoning our air, this gas plant will become a stranded asset when we move to truly clean renewables.”
