Yes, it’s true, ATC has applied to the Wisconsin Public Service Commission for a CPCN for its Badger-Coulee line, the dashed part of CapX 2020 on the map above.  Today also, Minnesota Power applied for a Certificate of Need for its (Not-So-) Great Northern Transmission line.  Thanks, guys…

Two dockets, it was filed under a new number… so does that mean all that has gone before is gone?  The old one was 137-CE-160, the new docket is 5-CE-142.  To look up the dockets, go to www.psc.wi.gov, and plunk in the numbers. The good news is that they HAVE moved all the previous docket filings into the new 5-CE-142 docket!

La Crosse-Madison Power Line Proposal Submitted to PSC

The PSC’s site is REALLY, REALLY slow, maybe everyone in the Eastern Interconnect is looking at this?  So, later… and until then:
