Voice your opinion on RICL
To the Editor,
Rock Island Clean Line LLC (RICL) proposes to build a high voltage transmission line across northern Illinois. The proposed route will cross prime farmland, forever removing about 12,000 acres from production.
Placing towers and lines across some of the best farmland in the world will forever prevent and/or alter normal farming operations. These are economic and operational burdens that farmers — and ultimately consumers — will have to bear. The line will also permanently decrease actual and aesthetic property values. In contrast, RICL’s private, for profit venture will be backed by the power of eminent domain (if the ICC grants them a certificate of public necessity) and subsidized by our federal tax dollars. This seems patently unfair.
