RESPECTAgZone: Say NO to DLC high voltage towers
0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500.
We all need reliable energy. But not when high voltage transmission lines threaten our homes, our parks, our businesses, our animals, and our community. There are other paths to get us what we need with less of an impact.
In June 2017, Duquesne Light Company proposed to run high voltage lines on huge towers through our agricultural zone in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. This agricultural zone is one-of-a-kind treasure near Pittsburgh with clean and green-conserved properties preserved by long-standing efforts in Indiana Township. Our community includes precious few remaining woodlands and farms for all to enjoy.
The 138-kv lines from Pine Creek to West Deer, proposed by Duquesne Light Company, not only disturbs the Rachel Carson Trail, land conserved by the Allegheny Land Trust, but also Hartwood Acres, two FAA landing strips, Goat Rodeo Farm & Dairy, as well as many others!
Alternative routes are clearly available. Duquesne Light Company must abandon their proposed routes through our agricultural zone and we need your help.
Join us at RESPECTAgZone in calling on Duquesne Light Company to abandon any attempt to ravage the Agricultural Zone in Indiana Township with their high voltage towers. Choose another route!

We write with the strongest opposition to the Preferred and Western routes of the West Deer Transmission Reliability Project. We demand that an alternative route be found that does not ravage the treasured agricultural and clean and green conserved properties on those routes. These proposed routes will have irreparable effects on the community, historic farms, trails, FAA airports, small businesses, and families in the AgZone.
Chose another route today. We support RESPECTAgZone and their unending mission to protect the AgZone from the construction of these hazardous high voltage lines by DLC.
