Stop Transource Franklin County
is comprised of concerned citizens working to stop the Transource Independence Energy (IEC) Project. We care deeply about preserving Franklin County's economic stability, cultural heritage, rural beauty, and landowner's rights. Transource proposes to build unsightly and damaging 135-foot tall high voltage towers, spaced 5-7 towers per mile, across 29 miles of private lands, commercial properties, neighborhoods, school property, and untouched greenspace in Franklin County.
Not only is this land grab
idea, it is totally UNNECCESARY
- a "market efficiency project" designed solely for company investor's profit and to supposedly save a few cents for rate payers in MD, VA, and DC, while devastating our lands and burdening our County tax base. Transource is trying to seize and condemn our lands through eminent domain, even though the goal of this project is FAR
from being in the public's best interest. The residents of Franklin County will only suffer if this project is approved, as these looming towers and zapping transmission lines will decrease property values, damage the environment, contaminate our watershed, negatively impact tourism, agriculture, and recreation, and forever destroy the landscape of our beloved Cumberland Valley surroundings.Our goal is to Stop Transource!
We are well on our way to winning this fight, having unanimous opposition to this project by citizens, landowners, business leaders, civic organizations, state and federal legislators, and others.
Stop Transource Franklin County has also retained a legal team led by Jordan B. Yeager, of Curtin and Heefner, LLP. This firm has a very successful track record of winning on behalf of citizens' and environmental rights, and is in alliance with legal teams from affected York County PA, Harford County MD, and the PA Office of Consumer Advocate, (to name a few) - all determined to stop Transource!
Donations will go towards our legal efforts, land owner support, and helping to promote public awareness. This grass roots effort depends on you!Please join with Franklin County neighbors, friends, and fellow citizens! DONATE
, and ask others to do the same, before it is too late! Together, we will defeat this proposal and preserve Franklin County...not only for ourselves, but for future generations to come!Thank you!
