To stop the approval and construction of an unneeded 305 mile, 500 kV transmission line through NE Oregon, and thereby:
- Protect environmental, historical and cultural resources;
- Prevent degradation of timber and agricultural lands and the Oregon National Historic Trail;
- Promote energy conservation, and acknowledge the past decade’s revolutionary developments in renewable energy, energy storage, and distribution.
To challenge Idaho Power’s controversial statistics and outdated plan. They want to reap a corporate profit by gouging a gash across our treasured public and private lands. The B2H line is not needed, and we can prove it. It’s time to convince the agencies/officials to Stop B2H and protect our grand-kids’ future. We want to prevent negative environmental, cultural, health, safety, social, and economic impacts to our region, as well as damage to the Oregon National Historic Trail. A highly centralized distribution of power is less secure, prone to natural hazards and hacking.
We seek to promote rapid use of new energy technologies, which are carbon-free, more efficient, cheaper, and currently in use. These are solutions available now and into the future. The B2H is a damaging, obsolete dinosaur!
