Transmission in trouble

Here are two posts that show what can happen…

Three lines are now in various stages of withdrawal, suspension and delay, they’re the three that PJM proposed as its
“backbone” 500kV transmission.  It’s theirdream to move large amounts of coal generated electricity to New York, but of course they’re never stating that purpose.  We got a lot of good information into the record about lack of demand, the PJM reports demand tanking in a couple of ways, their “PJM State of the Market Report” and also their just released “PJM 2010 Load Forecast” and there’s no way of getting around it — transmission lines are not NEEDED.

Here’s a couple of posts from Legalectric about Friday’s BPU decision to delay:
