In an effort to win over East County ratepayers , SDG&E opened up a month long series of informational meetings in various East County locations.
Unfortunately for SDG&E the first meeting in Lakeside was met with fierce opposition.
Local residents are concerned with the destruction of views in the pristine El Monte Valley as well as the El Capitan Open Space Preserve.
Is this really a place for a series of 150' tall metal towers ? No, particularly for a powerline that is not needed, is not guaranteed to carry energy from renewable sources, and damages the environment.
There are many alternatives for meeting our energy demands here in San Diego. Stringing a gigantic extension cord from the backcountry to the coast is yesterdays technology and has merely won out due to corporate greed.
