    A proposal to build a natural gas fired power plant in Rockland has the town considering selling city hall and residents concerned about safety. Supporters say natural gas is a stepping stone between coal and more sustainable energy solutions and that this project would bring economic relief to Rockland, in the form of taxes and jobs. The plant would provide local energy generation and steam power for local industries. But Rockland residents Debby Atwell of “Clean Air for Rockland Children” & Ron Huber of the Waterkeeper affiliate group “Friends of Penobscot Bay” are opposed to the plan, and they join us today to explain why.
