Didn't the Kinnelon council pass on a $150,000 stipend from Pse&g not to oppose this plan and tnot take the money and did not oppose the plan? Anyone out there know for sure?

I thought that the existing line that's been there longer than my 60 years is either 125,000 or 250,000 volts and that the addtional is 500,000 volts of much needed electric energy to keep all those air conditioners, electric stoves, elecrically heated homes operating. I didn't even mention all of those huge tv's and pool filters etc.
