Unplug Nuclear Power 2016

Event Date(s): 
Friday, March 11, 2016 (All day)

March 11 is the fifth anniversary of the Fukushima disaster. We will again put pressure on the utility companies to drop nuclear power by using as little grid supplied power as possible on that day. Please invite all your friends, and get your organization to sign on as a sponsor.

The cool thing about this Action is that you can do it wherever you are. There are four levels of participation. Level 1 is to just make a conscious effort to use as little electricity as possible that day. Turn off extra lights, etc. Level 2 is to make severe cuts, turn off your TV, Computer, etc. Level three is to turn off your main breaker and disconnect from the grid for a day. It's best to have backup power for that one, especially if you have freezers or sump pumps or other devices that need to keep running. Level 4 is to commit to putting more power onto the grid through wind or solar or small hydro than you use that day. Wherever you are, you can participate at whatever level you can.

All we ask of sponsors is that they: 1) Inform their members of the event and ask them to participate; and 2) Allow us to list them as sponsors on our website.

Initiated by Ohio Green Party State Central Committee member & US Senate Candidate Joe DeMare
