In January 2016 Mike Faherty spoke to a group of Cumberland County property owners threatened by eminent domain for a proposed new 69-kilovolt transmission line. Mike reviewed potential alternative routes including an existing nearby right of way corridor. Mike pointed out that the announced PPL method for calculating damages fails to comply with the required method per the Pennsylvania Eminent Domain Code. The group will challenge public need for the project.
