It’s more of the Brookings CapX 2020 routing hearing, seems like it never ends!  And again, ROUGH notes. 

ROUGH notes for December 16

And apologies, I spent a lot of time trying to catch up on prep, or read the piles of exhibits, so notetaking was not good today.

Evidentiary Hearing – Dec 15 in St. Paul

Filed under:Brookings Routing Docket — posted by admin on @ 6:06 am

Here are notes from yesterday’s Brookings CapX 2020 evidentiary hearing in St. Paul.

Two interesting things revealed – one, defensive as they are, expansion of the Lake Marion substation could instead be plopped down at the southern most part of “alternate” route and then use route proposal going east from that point. THey’re claiming that the Lake Marion substation is nailed down in Certificate of Need, but it is NOT, we’re doing siting and routing NOW, not then.

Two – they still can/will not declare who or what entity will own the line at time of operation.
