Can't they just run the lines through a few THP developments?

I don't own PPL stock, but I am glad to see they are now allowed to plow through these cry-baby, elitist/environmental wacko NIMBYs of Springfield Twp/Upper Saucon. Everyone wants electricity but nobody wants to see the infrastructure in their neighborhood. PPL isn't doing this, and spending all this money for the heck of it. Existing lines can't keep up with the development in this area.

This is going to destroy people's property values. Maybe I will be able to get a house cheaper down there now

I never even SAW any of these power lines until this story started showing up.
Then I started looking and they were they all the time.

Now I can plug in my new electronic bong.
