The non-profit group “Stop B2H Coalition” based in Union Count, has been working to stop Idaho Power’s proposed power line through Eastern Oregon. The Boardman-to-Hemingway 500-kilovolt, 300-mile transmission line Idaho Power proposed in 2007 has faced stiff opposition from the group from the get-go. The coalition now counts upward of 500 individual members and multiple supporting organizations, including Oregon Rural Action, the Blue Mountain Alliance and Greater Hells Canyon Council.
