Opponents in a battle to stop the siting of a 350-megawatt power plant on the city’s south side were honored recently by Alternatives for Community and Environment, a statewide advocacy group. Developer Brockton Power LLC is working to locate the $350 million facility in an industrial zone adjacent to dense residential development in one of the city’s poorest areas. The ACE 2014 Environmental Justice Award went to attorneys Lisa Goodheart and Phelps Turner of Sugarman, Rogers, Barshak, and Cohen, P.C., who have offered free legal services to two grass-roots groups fighting the plant, Citizens for a Better Brockton and Stop the Power . “It was an honor for Stop the Power to stand alongside the residents of Brockton and receive the award,’’ said spokesman Justin Kane. “We have been fighting together for eight years for what is fair and what is right.”
