Stop PA Power Lines Benefit is fun with a purpose.

Franklin County Visitors Bureau invites the public to Penn National Golf Center on September 15, 4 PM to 9 PM, for the music of Stable Shakers and the messages of citizens, leaders, and officials, talking about the proposed 29-mile, 230 kV-electric line project. The outdoor concert is being held just off Orchard Drive in Fayetteville at Penn National Golf Course’s driving range. Food trucks will be onsite, and Penn National will have free mini golf for the kids. Tickets are $20 at the gate.

Hailing from the very farmlands that are impacted by the power line project, Stable Shakers guitarist and songwriter Spencer Pheil realized the sacrifice of Franklin County. With five to seven, 13.5-story towers proposed to mark each mile of the project, Pheil’s concern spurred him to join forces with the local group standing up and speaking out about the damaging consequences of such a project. Working with Penn National Golf Course Community, Pheil thought delivering the message with the self-described “twang jazz” sounds of Stable Shakers would go a long way to building a stronger awareness of the project and solidify the importance of saving the county’s land and lifestyle. Also performing at the benefit is blues rock band Ding.

The high-power line project also impacts York County PA and Washington and Harford Counties, MD. Not a redundancy project or one to provide electric to citizens and businesses without power, it is a market efficiency project that will implement eminent domain, if approved, to acquire land from property owners in Franklin and York Counties PA and Washington and Harford Counties, MD with the intent of trying to provide an unguaranteed cost-saving to electric users in northern VA, Baltimore, and Washington DC.
