Drax Re-power

Received 24 July 2018
From Julian Goodare


I would like to add my voice to that of those submitting objections to the recent proposal to build new natural gas power station units at Drax power station.

We don't need more power stations burning fossil fuels and releasing greenhouse gases. We need sustainable power, and we need energy conservation.

The sooner we make the transition away from fossil fuels, the less painful it will be.

I do hope that you will refuse this application by Drax.
