Metro Justice will hold rally in support of making RG&E publicly owned
ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Metro Justice will hold a rally on Tuesday night to demand that city officials support the study needed to consider replacing RG&E with a public utility.
The group says a publicly-owned utility would lower utility rates, create union jobs, and help to transition to clean energy. A legal analysis from the Environmental Advocacy Clinic at the University at Buffalo School of Law will be at the rally.
The rally at Rochester City Hall starts at 5:30 p.m.
