About The Coalition to Protect PWC

The Coalition to Protect Prince William County is a grassroots movement formed in response to Dominion Power’s proposal to erect 100-plus-foot-tall transmission towers for a single customer — Amazon.com, which is building a data center campus outside the town of Haymarket.

HOAs, neighborhoods, local businesses, churches, charities, groups and individuals have brought their support together to form this Coalition in order to protect the culture, history and environment of western Prince William County from these power lines.  The better alternative is to partially bury the transmission line along the Interstate 66 right-of-way – if the need is proven.  On January 12, 2015, Coalition supporters, citizens throughout the Haymarket/Gainesville area, attended a town hall sponsored by Virginia Delegate Bob Marshall, where they shared concerns, and personal stories with county and state officials. Over 1,000 attended.

“Above-ground power towers would permanently damage businesses, hurt homeowners and blemish the rural communities they traverse,” said Coalition Executive Director Elena Schlossberg.  “With this Coalition, the entire Haymarket/Gainesville community has come together to say ‘We will not be divided by unacceptable transmission line routes that we do not need. We stand united.’”

Listed below are just some of the Coalition supporters.  These, as well as hundreds of  citizens from additional communities, are fighting to protect our districts and neighborhoods from Dominion’s proposed power towers.
