22. Problem we are having out here in NM is MONSTER TRANSMISSION LINES for solar and wind

Like 150 ft tall and they want to go over peoples property with a 100 ft right of way.

I lived off grid for ten yrs and now have my solar panels connected to the grid - so I love solar energy, but....... we have these HUGE companies who want to make huge bucks and are messing with all the little people to totally devalue their land and health.

I have had to become a mega activist to try and keep this stuff off my little 40 acres. In one case I did not succeed and have two 90 ft towers going across my land - wind power from NM going to Arizona (not used locally). This time, our neighborhood succeeded in keeping the 150 ft towers towers out of our area, but now other neighborhoods are organizing to keep the new route out of theirs. We also had to fight Kinder Morgan when they wanted to send CO2 thru here. We have a neighborhood activist group, Resistiendo, ready to meet within hrs notice to fight all this shit. Country people all across the US are having this problem.
