Environmentalists are calling on the state to investigate Broadwater Energy for advertisements they say are patently false and misleading.
The activists gathered in Wading River Thursday to protest the ad campaign. They take issue with the claim that the proposed liquefied natural gas terminal in the Long Island Sound will save taxpayers $300 a year.
Environmentalists say there is no evidence the terminal will save taxpayers money and they worry the company is culling support from residents based on that claim.
Broadwater stands by their statements about savings. The company says the activists are ignoring independent studies on the project in their own assessments.
Gov. Eliot Spitzer is due to make a decision on the Broadwater plan in April.
