The Chino Hills, CA Community & Residents have been in a battle with the local power company SCE(PCU) to prevent the installation of 500,000 volt power lines in their backyards and near schools and work places. Recently they updated on their Facebook page (Hope for the Hills) that they have a timeline of a plan that may prove to be successful in working with the power company and local government to put the dangerous and monstrous power lines underground. In the deal the SCE(PCU) and local government will review plans to take $76 million in land and allow it to be used to put the power lines underground there.
This is the update from Facebook stating the date and decision to review the underground power line plan. More information on the timeline can be seen there.
