Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2007 | I read with interest the story on the Sunrise Powerlink that was posted on Aug. 27
This is a very important project for San Diego’s workers. One of the main reasons the San Diego-Imperial Counties Labor Council supports the Sunrise Powerlink is because our working families and local businesses depend on reliable power to help make ends meet. The Sunrise Powerlink will deliver 1,000 megawatts of reliable and renewable power from the Imperial Valley to San Diego.
Plain and simple, if the lights go out, many of our workers go home without a paycheck.
