Why are you having an outage at your Hildreth Compressor Station in Suwannee County, Florida, Sabal Trail? And are there continuing stink leaks at your site without a compressor at Dunnellon, Florida in Marion County? Meanwhile, you’re still shipping nothing. For that $3 or $4 billion, much more electricity from solar power could be online right now in Florida, shutting down gas power plants instead of building them.

That’s the same Hildreth Compressor Station about which the Suwannee BOCC passed a resolution November 17, 2015, saying in part,
WHEREAS, the citizenry has raised concerns/that the shift in location to the secondary option site has brought the compression station location and its recurring noise and potential environmental, health and safety impacts in closer proximity to a more densely populated rural residential area; and
WHEREAS, the Board recognizes the increased net change in potentially affected residential properties and desires to express the concerns of its citizenry to Sabal Tail Transmission LLC.
This supposedly safe compressor station now has an outage scheduled for February. I wonder how that will affect noise, environment, health, and safety?
I wonder if Sabal Trail’s Andrea Grover would say, like she did about the Dunnellon stink leaks, “this was a new system and they are still learning”?
Well, they’ve learned how to ship zero gas.
