The fight to stop the largest coal-fired power plant ever proposed in Virginia is heating up again, and your help is needed.

ODEC and the town of Dendron are wasting no time and have already scheduled two required hearings: one before the Surry County Planning and Zoning Commission on February 27 and one before the Dendron Town Council on March 5. Below, sign up to come to one or both hearings.
