Edison needs to find another alternative. Run lines underground maybe? Should run it through the park, since it will probably be shut down anyway with the way the budget cuts are going.

This type of lines run through almost every city in Southern California. Look in Pasadens, Temple City, Arcadia, Azusa, Corona etc etc etc. They are there in those cities, what makes this city think they are any better than others. Bunch of incompetent city council wasting taxpayer money.

By all means, do not complete this project. Green energy!? Not in my back yard!

Leave everything the way it is, when you can not possibly shove another electron through the wires, simply start shedding the loads. Make sure to drop the communities that opposed expansion first though.

Why don't all of you self-centered whiners just kiss off. You're making chino stink more than when the cows were there. You come in with your overextended credit phony wealth and want everyone else to pamper you. Kiss Off! Go pretend to be someone important somewhere else.

With all the negative comments coming in, have any of you even read Southern California Edison's guidelines for the towers and lines?

They recommend a 350' easement with towers this size. This easement is only 150'.

My house is in a cul-de-sac butted up next to these lines and the lines will be within 100' of my property. I am an original homeowner and I moved in knowing the lines were inactive.

My concern is the tower can fall on my house.
My concern is I have a pool that children would not be able to use.
My concern is I have a fence that could electrocute my family, friends or pets.
My concern would be the health of my family with the cancer risks.

Is this how you would want to live? Do you think I'll ever be able to sell my home? I have to disclose to interested parties that my home will kill them.

The Sierra Club and environmentalists agreed with us that the towers should run through open space.
Are their findings wrong? Do you think it might be a conflict of interest when the head of the PUC was the President of Southern California Edison?

We are not protesting "green energy", we're all for it. California is risking the health of its taxpayers by allowing a conglomerate municipality
to run these hazardous lines throught residential areas. The City of Chino Hills is the only entity willing to save the health of its citizens.

I surely hope the judges investigate a bit further and listen to the people of Chino Hills.

I can't imagine living with the noise and the health risks if my home were close to the lines.
With all the open spaces Southern California Edison could have put the towers, it's inconceivable that the PUC would allow towers that tall be put in a small easement to protect the homeowners.

Now, it makes me also wonder how the head of the Public Utilities Commission who was once in the drivers seat at Edison can think there is no conflict of special interests with his ruling to allow the towers. Did SCE buy him off?

There are plenty of open space to run these ultra high voltage, high power lines/towers ... CPUC apparently is not regulating SCE the way it should be with SCE former president running CPUC, they're just plowing thru. whatever route that's the most convenient to them in order to keep costs down for construction and long term maintenance. They do have s narrow easement in place but now they're putting huge towers in between the front yards and back yards of existing homes, tennis court, basketball court, hiking route and BBQ areas. You'll have to see it to believe it, even a 3 year kid could tell you the situation just doesn't make sense.
