[**Note Anchor Tag**]
Tonight we begin a series of reports on an issue that has sparked passionate debates across Southwest Virginia.
American Electric Power wants to build a 765-kilovolt power line -- a huge, high-voltage line -- [DISSOLVE TO FULLSCREEN MAP] stretching from Wyoming, West Virginia, to Cloverdale, just north of Roanoke.
The power company says, without it, we face the risk of major power outages.
But there are plenty of opponents who have spent their time and energy trying to knock down the line A-E-P wants to build. [DISSOLVE TO FULLSCREEN BOARD "POWER STRUGGLE"]
Scott Goldberg begins our series with a look at why the power company says we need the line ... and how strong opposition to the project is turning this debate into a high-voltage power struggle.
