This affects YOU
ATXI and other companies within the energy corridor add the costs for these unnecessary projects to your electric bill. In this case, Missouri ratepayers will pay for this and other lines, along with users from Wisconsin to Louisiana, with an increase in charges on their monthly bill. An upgrade to existing lines would cost much less and will save our farms.
Right now it’s Missouri, but tomorrow they could come for your land.
The line will interrupt farming practices by draining batteries underneath in farm equipment, eliminating weed control options on some farms, and rendering large areas of productive land completely useless. The route dissects farms when existing rights-of-way are mere feet away. It was designed without legitimate input from residents or lawmakers.
Emissions from these lines interfere with the operation of pacemakers. Many affected landowners are elderly and depend on these life-saving devices.
