Henderson Co. Commissioners Concerned About Duke Lines

Duke's plans call for the power lines to cross about 25 miles in Henderson County.

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. – The Henderson County Board of Commissioners is concerned about Duke Energy’s plans for a power transmission line that would run from Asheville to Campobello, South Carolina.

The Times-News of Hendersonville reported (http://bit.ly/1EUa2Ks) that the board Tuesday unanimously approved a resolution saying the proposed power line would have a negative impact on Henderson County land owners and the county’s economy.

Duke’s plans call for the power lines to cross about 25 miles in Henderson County.

The resolution also includes recommendations if the company and state regulators determine the 230-kilovolt power lines are necessary. That includes the use of an independent consultant to determine the need for the project.

The resolution also asks that Duke locate the new lines in or next to existing power lines.
