Stop the CHC Transmission Line Today!

Do you want giant ugly towers strung together across the Driftless like a poorly conceived tattoo on the landscape that we’ll have to look at for the rest of our lives? Do you want the towers to linger in the memories of visitors to the Driftless, subconsciously diminishing the value of the landscape in their minds? Do you want the path to cut through farms, forests, and sensitive ecosystems that have been there for generations, in many cases forcibly taking land from good people who don’t want to give it up? Would you like the towers to loom in your mind as towering symbols of defeat, sapping you of just a little of the pride you had in the place where you live? Would you as consumers like to be paying for these towers for the next 30 years even when there are more cost effective and aesthetically pleasing options that could deliver better results?

If your answer to all of these questions is no (which it should be), then you should let your voice be heard in opposition to the Cardinal-Hickory Creek transmission line. There are only a couple more opportunities to speak out!
