Illinois Farm Bureau votes to oppose RICL project
Farm Bureau has been aggressively engaged while working on a project which is proposed to run right through northern Bureau County, affecting a large number of landowners, our members. For the past few years representatives have actively attended both public and private meetings to stay in the know about the proposed project.
For those of you who may not be aware, this proposed Rock Island Clean Line Energy project would consist of approximately 500 miles of overhead, high-voltage direct current transmission lines, transmitting up to 3,500 megawatts of wind energy from Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota and Minnesota and terminating at a conversion station in Grundy County, Ill.
According to its website, www.rockislandcleanline.com, the project is owned by Clean Line Energy, which is a private company founded by Michael Skelly, who led the development efforts at Horizon Wind Energy. The company develops high voltage, long-haul transmission lines connecting the best renewable resources in North American to communities that need power.
