This whole Hunt Power Verde Line offends me. Surely Jemez Mountains Electric Cooperative knows whether it is at capacity or not, contrary to what was reported in an article in the Rio Grande SUN in an article entitled “Officials Want Proposed Power Line Info,” Feb 2, page A10.
Maybe the tribes, whose land the line must cross, will make some money off of it, but the rest of us Norteños won’t benefit in any perceivable way, because the power is obviously meant for somewhere else, which I believe Hunt is lying about.
Putting a dangerous high power line next to a school is nothing short of criminal and I certainly don’t want to look at it for the rest of my life in the south end of La Mesilla.
Get real, people.
