April 12, 2012 (Jacumba)--I have lived in Jacumba for over twenty years. The Jacumba area has been economically depressed since interstate 8 was built approximately 45 years ago. What this area needs is JOBS. These projects will bring temporary and permanent JOBS. We need any and all JOBS created by these projects and all future projects. 

 

The ECO Substation is so vitally important to the Jacumba area as it will provide the necessary infra-structure for the Tule Wind and all future clean energy projects. Also, it will provide more dependable electrical distribution by adding a connection to the SouthWest Powerlink in our area. The Tule Wind Power Project is perfectly placed in McCain Valley away from residential areas. It will provide clean energy for up to 60,000 homes,while creating NO air pollution. 

 
I completely support the ECO and TULE  projects as they will enhance the lives of myself and my neighbors and the entire world.
