Many Groups Fight Power Lines

sign2-noborderRETA researchers have discovered a number of websites that we have recently added to our “Links”, so it will be easier for you to keep track of other organizations battling high voltage power lines in Alberta and elsewhere.

A common theme amongst the organizations appears to be educating the public with the facts about health, safety, property value and environmental impacts of overhead power lines. Transmission companies consistently hide this information from us in an attempt to convince us that the decades-old way of transmitting electricity (i.e., stringing long above ground monster lines and towers across the countryside) is fine. Well, the growing volume of facts speak for themselves, and power companies can no longer ignore the negative impacts of overhead lines, the benefits of burying these lines, and using other more advanced and environmentally-friendly technologies for both generating and transmitting electricity.

Be sure to check out some of the other sites which include:

  1. Power Line Health Facts Website
  2. Rural Albertans for Ethical Electricity Transmission
  3. Citizens for Responsible Transmission Line Siting
  4. Citizens Energy Task Force
