Austin PSR has been given an incredible opportunity to expand our work in one of our key areas of strength and expertise – advocating for the retirement of dirty coal-fired electrical generation plants. Austin PSR received this grant in partnership with National PSR from the Energy Foundation to work on coal plant retirement statewide over the next year. This grant will extend the work we’ve done for the past 10 years to engage and collaborate with the public health community and with health professionals who treat patients everyday who are suffering from air borne contaminants. We will add a crucial public health voice to move Texas away from using coal and into cleaner and more sustainable power generation methods.
