AEP and my home town...

USA Today named my home town of Eureka Springs one of the top 10 places to go and witness the splendor of fall colors against forested hillsides. They published a photo of our beautiful forest views that AEP would destroy in the quest for greater profits while demand for electric power has fallen for the 7th year in a row.

What can you do? I have three ideas. Go to and tell the Arkansas Public Service Commission to immediately reject the application. The second idea is to add to the growing conversation on the USA Today site, and leave a comment at the close of the article. A third idea is to go to AEP's facebook page  and tell them that their plan to sacrifice the beauty of the Ozarks for the sake of their profits is unconscionable. Their application to trash the Ozarks should come to an immediate halt. Even if there was a proven need for the project (the Arkansas Public Service Commission found that there was not.) this project is too costly to bear.

  1. I bet SWEPCO wasn't expecting the sort of resistance to their proposal that people have put up in Arkansas. Rational people would learn from it.
