Town Hall for a Public Utility with City Council Vice President Mary Lupien

Fed up with RG&E? You're not alone! 

If you live in Fairport your power company is actually under public, local, and community control. Rochester residents deserve the same options.  With data, research, and your support, Rochester City Council has the power to turn our Gas & Electric supplier into a public utility.  To do that, they need to hear from you!

Come to the Rochester for Energy Democracy Town Hall meeting with Rochester City Council Vice President, Mary Lupien, to share why you’re fed up with RG&E and learn what you can do to help City Council take steps to replace RG&E with a community-owned utility that will be more affordable, accountable, and climate-conscious.

RG&E, a for-profit company owned by Iberdrola based in Spain, extracts $95 million a year in profits from our community with little reinvestment. RG&E files to increase our rates every few years; and has just filed for a 20% rate hike- almost double the increase granted in 2020. 

Fairport, Spencerport, and Churchville all have public utilities; we would like to hear if you think Rochester should too! This Town Hall meeting will be held on Thursday, October 27th from 6-8 PM at the Thomas P Ryan Recreation Center (530 Webster Avenue). We especially encourage you to come if you are a constituent of the East District represented by Mary Lupien. Arrive at 5:30 PM for free food, sponsored by Metro Justice, from Rob's Kebobs Food Truck prior to the start of the town hall! 

Will you RSVP to join us?
