Warning: These are proposed routes. It does not mean that the other study corridors are safe from RICL and other proposed routes!
RICL is ONE venture capitalist company's idea of how to make a hefty profit. It does NOT consider the wind power available in Lake Michigan, nor on the Atlantic Coast - both of which are better wind resources than what RICL is proposing to tap into. If the same amount of money were spent IN state on energy efficiency programs and distributed generation, we would be supporting, by far, more permanent local jobs and benefitting the local renewable energy development.
In addition, numerous uncoordinated and unnecessary transmission line projects are being proposed in the midwest - at the cost of billions of dollars to the taxpayer and consumer.
