During 2011 – 2013, Irene was involved with a grassroots organization called, “Hope for the Hills” which fought Southern California Edison’s installation of eighteen, 200 foot towers (carrying 500,000 volts) next to several neighborhoods within the quaint community of Chino Hills. As a representative for “Hope for the Hills,” Irene spoke before the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) on several occasions. In an unprecedented ruling, the CPUC reversed their decision and ordered Edison to dismantle the towers and reroute the lines underground. This will be the first 500KV underground project in the United States.
