ARCHIBALD RANCH RESIDENTS WANT TEHACHAPI POWER LINES REMOVED
The City of Ontario residents in Archibald Ranch are petitioning the City of Ontario, to join forces with City of Chino Hills and have these Tehachapi Project power lines removed from above ground. The City of Chino Hills fought Edison in court, and the outcome was reported by CPUC, that these towers will come down in their city, and the wiring will be installed underground, instead.
The residents of Archibald Ranch are concerned with their property values being affected, and the growing concern of health issues that can stem from the reported 400,000 to 500,000 volts of electricity, these towers generate, which are within 75 to 400 feet from many of these neighbors back yards, and neighboring residents.
Wendy HamiltonAs of July 2013, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) did approve the TEHACHAPI TRANSMISSION LINES to be installed underground in the City of Chino Hills, California. This was requested by the residents of the City of Chino Hills after they had sought out legal action against Southern California Edison’s huge project, where monstrous, 200 feet tall (approx.) power lines had already been installed throughout a section of the City of Chino Hills. In part, the city’s residents were concerned with city values, property values and health concerns, amongst other issues, that these towers represent. The huge utility conglomerate was still installing these towers as the court was deciding on whether the residents of Chino Hills even had a legal case, where the legal costs have been in upward of $4.5 million dollars.
