SWEPCO Land Agents are not your friends

If they contact you, ask for a copy of the Easement Agreement and contact a lawyer. Don’t sign any SWEPCO documents. The SWEPCO agents will offer you a low price for your land, an abuse of eminent domain. Beware of the SWEPCO Right-of-Way Supervisor Jonathan Wiltsie. Do not trust him. Tom McCray, the AEP poster child of eminent domain land agent abuse, in 2009, told the Granville Ohio Village Council: "AEP has the right to cut down all the trees in Granville." http://tinyurl.com/No-U-Do-Not

SWEPCO will use helicopters to build the line

Here is information from Dublin, Ohio, where AEP is currently building a line. Neighbors were unaware and surprised to hear helicopters. Noise complaints have been filed with the city of Dublin by residents due to the constant noise. AEP warns the public to stay away from the construction sites. http://www.10tv.com/content/stories/2014/02/20/dublin-aep-chopper-repairs.html

  

Not your average power lines!

The Transmission Lines that we are trying to stop from being built are not your average power lines. They are High Voltage and Extremely High Voltage lines, carrying up to 700,000 Volts of electricity.

 

We are not trying to stop the distribution power lines that you see around town that are 15-20 feet tall. Those are needed to distribute power to communites from micro grids.

 

Transmission lines are anywhere from 50 feet tall to over 200 feet tall depending on their voltage. For example, please see the picture to the left. It shows the size difference between a 345 kV transmission line and a 220V distribution power line. Also please see the car at the bottom of the tower that looks like a kids toy. These transmission towers are HUGE!

 

There are numerous risks with these lines, information is available all over the internet and a lot of good information is available here. Please see below.

 

I hope this helps clear up any confusion for those of you who thought we were talking about the small distribution power lines.

  

Electrical Grids are Outdated

SPP is the agency that claims we need a better grid. We all know that a reliable grid is an oxymoron. The US grid grew one line at a time with many different components that can fail at any time.

 

Redundancy is an expensive way to fake reliability. Distributed renewable solutions are elegant, affordable, and simple.

 

Utilities have not figured out how to make a profit and have tried to stop them for years. That is the problem.

 

No one needs APSC approval or public funds to install solar panels. Just to make the point and oppose the SWEPCO project, a crew of 4 installed a full grid-tie in my house in eight hours. All I did was grill hot dogs and chipotle smoked bean burgers. No lawyers involve, no political contributions, just burgers. I also sold my AEP shares, you know why.
