Invasive: This amendment would allow transmission-sized substations virtually anywhere – even next to homes, schools and day care centers. It also permits any associated facilities, such as warehouses and tall buildings, to be located virtually anywhere.
Eye Sore: Worse, it allows existing substations to be REBUILT as massive transmission-sized substations virtually anywhere – even next to homes.
These facilities have ultra-high voltages – as much as 1500 kv. A substation could be several acres in size with numerous high voltage towers and lines.
Local governments would be limited to imposing only minimal setback and buffering requirements.
