Lithium-Ion Battery Energy System Storage (BESS) Facilities are DANGEROUS
The most urgent danger BESS facilities present to the towns and cities where they are located is EXTREME FIRE HAZARD due to TENDENCIES TO OVERHEAT that can lead to THERMAL RUNAWAY EVENTS. During such events super-heated toxic gases, chemicals, and particulate matter are produced which can lead to air, soil, and groundwater contamination.
Locating any BESS facility in Acton – an area designated as a HIGH FIRE DANGER AREA – or the surrounding region is unacceptable. Featured at right are 4 more critical reasons why BESS facilities should not be located anywhere in the Acton region.
DANGEROUS TO OUR ENVIRONMENT AND ALL LIFE — LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES ARE CONSTRUCTED FROM PROVEN TOXIC AND CARCINOGENIC HEAVY METAL ELEMENTS ALONG WITH OTHER ELEMENTS, COMPOUNDS, AND MATERIALS THAT ARE ALSO TOXIC AND CARCINOGENIC
HIGH VOLUME ELECTRIC TRANSMISSION LINES HAVE BEEN PROVEN TO CAUSE "EMF" (Electro Magnetic Frequency) HEALTH ISSUES INCLUDING MALIGNANT CANCERS AND OTHER ILLNESSES IN COMMUNITIES THAT RUN UNDERNEATH AND NEAR THE TRANSMISSION LINES
FACILITIES WILL NOT PROVIDE ANY BENEFITS, SERVICES, OR REVENUE TO ACTON OR TO ITS RESIDENTS. ALL POWER GENERATED BY THE BATTERIES WILL BE TRANSMITTED TO SOCAL EDISON'S VINCENT HILL SUBSTATION FOR DISTRIBUTION TO METROPOLITAN AREAS.
BATTERY STORAGE FACILITIES WILL BE A BLIGHT UPON THE NATURAL, RURAL ENVIRONMENT AND CAUSE A DECLINE IN OUR QUALITY OF LIFE INCLUDING DRASTIC DECLINE OF PROPERTY VALUES AND MORE
