NRG’s Unit 3 gas fired power plant received a unanimous vote of approval from the Cape Cod Commission Thursday, December 1, 2016. The new unit is what is called a “peaker plant,” only being used for additional power to the southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island area to help meet energy demand during peak times.
Cape Cod Bay Watch (CCBW) is a program of the Jones River Watershed Association based in Kingston, Massachusetts. Our efforts are dedicated to protecting and restoring the ecosystems of Cape Cod Bay and the Jones River. CCBW was formed in 2012 by local groups and individuals with a long standing interest in water resources and environmental protection in Massachusetts. In January 2014, CCBW was formally adopted as a program of the Jones River Watershed Association, a member-based, 501(c)(3) organization, established in 1985.
