A group of activists, concerned residents and lawmakers protested a proposal for a power plant in Killingly on Monday afternoon. 

NTE Energy's plans to construct a new electricity generation facility along Route 101 in Dayville section of town. 

State Sen. Mae Flexer (D-Danielson), state Rep. Danny Rovero (D-Killingly) and state Rep. Christine Rosati Randall (D-Killingly) joined protesters to bring awareness to Connecticut officials.
