The alternatives put forth by Tabors had many issues:
None of the alternatives proposed by National Trust for Historic Preservation’s consultants, Tabors, resolved all the identified NERC Criteria violations.
None of Tabors alternatives can be constructed in timely manner, and thus needlessly jeopardize reliable service to the hundreds of thousands of people, institutions, and companies in the NHRLA.
Finally, none of the Tabors alternatives are cost efficient, and all cost substantially more than the Project. The alternatives do not meet the Project purpose and need, and otherwise are not reasonable or practicable alternatives.
