Aboveground transmission power line defies Hartland Township ordinance

In 2007, The Michigan Public Service Board approved construction of an overhead transmission line in Livingston and Oakland counties by ITC Transmission. The Transmission line defies a Hartland Township local ordinance which requires all new electrical transmission lines to be buried. The new power line will stretch for 21-miles through a pristine section of Hartland Township. The poles will be between 100 and 140 feet in height. Similar transmission infrastructure is proposed or under construction to service wind facilities in the US. The Hartland residents express their concerns in this video. Duration: 3 minutes 9 seconds

Wind energy facilities in the Columbia River Gorge?

This is a September 2007 FOX News report on the Cascade Wind Project, a large industrial wind facility proposed on Sevenmile Hill in Wasco County, Oregon, immediately adjacent to the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Each wind tower would be 400 feet tall and highly visible from several miles away. The project would forever change the natural scenic views in the Rowena area of the Gorge. This landscape has been largely unaltered since Lewis and Clark traveled through the Gorge two hundred years ago. Duration: 2 minutes 17 seconds
