Donations needed — filings to be made this week!

All –

We are in this CapX 2020 fight for a number of reasons, each of us has our self-interest, be it to protect our property, to preserve a favorite park or river, for the greater good or to help shift energy policy.  Today we’re at another of those pivotal points where what we do can make a difference in the outcome for the entire CapX 2020 Phase I project — there’s an open door…

Dollars are urgently needed TODAY for the fight to stop CapX 2020 in its tracks.  There’s a NoCapX 2020 PayPal link off to your right at the top of the page –>

… or checks made out to and sent directly to:

P.O. Box 176
Red Wing, MN  55066

A little goes a long way, and a lot goes even further!

Why today?  CapX 2020 has asked for a delay in the in-service date on the Brookings-Hampton part of Phase I, and that has an impact on not just Brookings, or the connected Hampton-Alma (LaCrosse) line, but the need for the entire project — their willingness to admit that the timing is off essentially admits that it is not needed — and that’s our challenge.  Right now, that door is open to file Motions in dockets to suspend and hopefully stop CapX 2020.

Keep an eye on www.nocapx2020 over the next few days for our filings and updates!

Thanks for your support,

CAPX ASKS FOR BROOKINGS DELAY

Filed under:Appeal,Brookings Routing Docket — posted by admin on @ 9:17 am

HOT OFF THE PRESS. CAPX 2020 HAS FILED A REQUEST TO DELAY THE BROOKINGS-HAMPTON TRANSMISSION LINE IN-SERVICE DATE.

This was NOT sent around via email as all other filings have been, gee, I wonder why?  Thanks to Paula Maccabee for the heads up because I’ve not been to the Post Office yet today, they MAILED it out, can you believe it.

It’s based on their cost recovery docket for the CapX project, where the PUC denied cost recovery of their dreams for the Brookings part of the full CapX 2020 Phase I for which they received their Certificate of Need:

Xcel’s Motion for Reconsideration – Rate Recovery Docket

Based on this Order:

PUC Order – April 27, 2010

Here’s their filing that tickles me so, from the Certificate of Need docket:

CapX filing to delay Brookings!

Now, let’s all read this stuff and have at it!  More to follow!

All together now, “OH HAPPY DAY!”

I’ve not read it yet, wanted to tell you all first, so comments soon…  In the meantime, read it for yourself and cheer!
