The Glendale City Council voted unanimously on March 1, 2022, to revise its prior 3-2 vote from February 15, when it approved a $260 million purchase of gas generation equipment. The new vote defers the decision on purchasing the gas equipment until the end of 2022 so that clean energy and other alternatives can be explored.
Council will consider Councilmember Brotman’s motion at their next meeting, March 1. This is our LAST CHANCE to insist that Glendale commit to a clean energy agenda starting now.
Last Thursday, Governor Newsom announced CalGem’s draft rule requiring new oil and gas well drilling to have 3,200ft (~1km) setbacks from homes, schools, community centers and other sensitive receptors.
