Mt Storm Nedpower Project Map - Now Online!

The exact project plan for the Phase 1 of the project sponsored by Nedpower is finally available for citizens to see. Over one year after the state board approved the project.

So why all the secrecy? Clearly when the extent of the project boundaries is overlapping on local landowners property - its obvious why Nedpower did not want this revealed. In the meantime it is unclear what property they have managed to buy access to in order to proceed even with this limited phase 1 plan. That will include the sub-station and power transfer hook-up to the gird via the VEPCO powerplant facility on the north end of the lake.

The full resolution map (1.5Mb) is available here.

In addition to the map turning up - Googles new ranking engine also threw up this link to Nedpower's original project outline. In addition to some pretty wild-eyed claims on the local revenues and employment benefits, the photographs presented are also sadly very misleading. Anyone knowing the area instantly can see that the views have been very selectively taken. Small wonder the State and County were hoodwinked by this rosy material. One is reminded of Colin Powells performance in front of the United Nations Security Council on Iraq.
