Energy Independent Sonoita, Elgin And Patagonia
We the undersigned support locally generated clean energy for the Sonoita-Patagonia-Elgin area.
The 69kV line that SSVEC is proposing is much too large for our residential needs (At most we will need 9000 kv over the next 20 years), so we understand that it is possible that 60,000 kV of this line may be meant for a large mine being explored by a company that is looking for approval near Patagonia. WE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS!
We demand that our government protect our communities, support our hard work towards energy independence, and help us to break our dependence on Dirty coal!
We understand that our long term economic opportunity is with tourism, preserving our amazingly diverse environment and being the shining example of clean living with clean energy.
