Play associated audio

Opponents of a multi-state power line that would run through northern Virginia are pleading their case to the state Supreme Court today. The power line would run from Washington County, Pennsylvania, to Loudoun County, Virginia, crossing northern West Virginia. The Virginia State's Corporation Commission okay'ed the project. However, The Piedmont Environmental Council, a citizens group called Power-Line Landowners Alliance and the counties of Fauquier, Prince William and Culpeper are challenging its approval. Dominion Virginia Power and Pennsylvania-based Allegheny Energy want to build the 500-kilovolt transmission line. Dominion says the power line is needed to satisfy growing demand for electricity. Opponents say there are better alternatives.
