We the undersigned ask that Duke Energy find an alternative site for the power substation that it is planning to locate right next to Isaac Dickson Elementary School in Asheville, NC.
We have serious concerns about the location of a Duke Energy Substation next to our school. The body of research about the potential health and safety risks to young children from the electromagnetic fields produced by power substations is inconclusive and contradictory. Since some studies indicate serious, potential health problems for children exposed to the EMF of a power substation, we ask that Duke Energy err on the side of ensuring the safety of the more than one thousand children that will attend Isaac Dickson over the next decade, and find an alternate property for the substation. Why risk the health and safety of so many children?
Dickson Elementary School parents and other concerned citizens and Duke Energy customers firmly and respectfully ask that Duke Energy locate the planned substation on property that does not border this school or any other. This is the right thing to do for our children.
Thank you for your consideration of our children’s health and safety.
