TGE proposed to permit, construct and operate a 1,100-megawatt combined cycle power plant on the Greenpoint/Williamsburg East River waterfront. The plant would have included 300-foot smokestacks spewing more than 1,000 tons per year of toxic emissions into the local environment, ruining city and state plans for parks and residential and commercial development on the waterfront.
