Utilities Pull Plug on Shasta to SF mega power line

Nor-Cal Power Line proposal upset both ranchers and open space fans
The Transmission Agency of Northern California (TANC) announced on July 15, 2009 that its Commission has voted to terminate the environmental review process for TANC’s Transmission Project (TTP).

Without the financial support of key TANC utility members to proceed with this process, TANC cannot undertake a detailed environmental analysis of the proposed alternative routes. As such, the TTP and the proposed alternative routes are no longer being considered…

"Updated: With TANC line terminated, WAPA is 'taking stock"' (Redding Record Searchlight, 7/15/09)

"TANC commissioners this morning unanimously approved unplugging planning for a proposed 600-mile long power line. The decision cheered local property owners who have been fighting the power line since they learned ... the Transmission Agency of Northern California was going to consider running the transmission corridor through or near their land ... The decisions by Sacramento Municipal Utility District, Modesto Irrigation District and Turlock Irrigation District to pull out of planning has made it financially impossible for that planning to continue ... However, TANC was not the only agency planning the power line."
