IT’S MINE!  NO, IT’S MINE!

HEY, THEY’RE TAKING MY TRANSMISSION LINE!

GET OUT OF HERE, I WAS HERE FIRST!

I love it when this happens… Xcel Energy just filed a Complaint at FERC wanting to grab its share of the Badger-Coulee transmission line, and ATC says, NO, it’s MY line, we get it ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL.  Xcel wants in on this lucrative proposition, if they’re not part of it they’re essentially screwed having set up all the rest of it, and ATC is giving them, at best, the raspberries.
