Shaw Orchards powerline impact

Barron Shaw, who's family has owned and operated Shaw Orchards in White Hall since 1909, is one of a number of people on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line opposed to the Transource Energy’s proposed Independence Energy Connection project. Shaw and others fear the transmission towers and lines could cut through properties, scenic highways or harm the environment in their largely rural communities.
