Calling for a moratorium on ALL new transmission line projects in Illinois

We are calling for a moratorium on ALL new transmission line projects in Illinois until we can evaluate ALL lines collectively to assess the actual needs, benefits, and especially the costs to Illinois landowners, taxpayers, and consumers.

Why is this important?

Block RICL, originated in northern Illinois, but now stretches across the midwest in a networks of friends, neighbors and families. We are joining our talents and resources to oppose Clean Line Energy Partners, LLC projects- including Rock Island Clean Line, Grain Belt Express, and Plains and Eastern, in addition to other unnecessary transmission line projects that are being proposed in the midwest - at the cost of billions of dollars to the taxpayer and consumer. Visit for more information


Reasons for signing

  • No more unnecessary high tension lines!
  • Block RICL!!
  • Private companies should not have eminent domain rights. Unless a mutual agreement is made, no corporation should be backed by the law. The law should be, "Of the people, by the people and for the people!!"
