Our Partnership With “think-cell”
Dominion Resources has proposed an ACP pipeline route through Wintergreen that is an offense to our community and our neighbors, a threat to our properties, businesses and safety, and an insult to the environment. We support the need for more clean energy but not at reckless expense to our community and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Our approach is simple: collaborate and, if needed, fiercely challenge Dominion and federal regulators to produce a more responsible route preferably using more co-location — a route that will not disrupt the Wintergreen community and smother local economic development, a route that minimizes environmental destruction and reduces safety hazards.
As we see it, Dominion has a simple choice to make: Maximize its profit at the expense of local communities or step up and be a responsible corporate citizen by using more route co-location.
We also work closely with like-minded organizations, each of which brings unique talent, resources, and expertise to attain this shared goal. Learn more about them here.
