Where Sabal Trail connects to Transco: the head of the black snake, at Hillabee Power Plant, owned by Exelon Corp., near Alexander City, Alabama. We were driving by, so we took some pictures. Here are Sabal Trail’s Alignment Maps for this area, the photographs I took yesterday, and a google map with links to the pictures, plus what you can do to stop this unnecessary, destructive, and hazardous fracked methane pipeline boondoggle.
Update 2016-10-10: All 527 of Sabal Trail’s April 2016 alignment maps are now available in small, big, huge, and PDF formats, courtesy of Lowndes Area Knowledge Exchange (LAKE).
There are many things that can be done to oppose the Sabal Trail 20th century fossil fuel boondoggle so we can get on faster with 21st century solar power, which has already won the market.
- Demand the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers open a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement.
Demand a rehearing on the FERC certificate of convenience and necessity.
Support legal actions by Sierra Club or anyone else against any USACE or FERC or state permit.

- Contact your members of Congress and ask them to rein in the rogue agency, FERC, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, that rubber-stamped Sabal Trail like it did all but one pipeline in the past thirty years.
Ask the Alabama, Georgia, and Florida legislatures and the U.S. Congress to revoke eminent domain for private companies.
Get Congress to reform the Natural Gas Act and the Pipeline Safety Act and change the charter of FERC to no new fossil fuel projects; only renewable energy.
- Join one of the many demonstrations against Sabal Trail and all its ugly siblings.
Perhaps most importantly, inform your friends and neighbors that Sabal Trail is not a hiking trail: it is a destructive, hazardous, and unnecessary greed grab by companies from somewhere else at our expense.
