Another little birdie told me that there were filings in both the CapX 2020 Certificate of Need docket (06-1115) and the Brookings routing case.   I’d checked yesterday about noon or so, go figure… and I’m not receiving notice of these filings electronically.  Are you?  The system has a problem.

Certificate of  Need(06-1115) – CapX 2020 has requested approval of delay of the in-service date for the Brookings-Hampton transmission line.  To access the entire docket, go to www.puc.state.mn.us, then “Search Documents” and then search for 06-1115.   We had a short hearing after Commerce asked for a variance and additional time for comments and responses.  The PUC agreed, and didn’t deal with other issues — here’s their notice:

Here’s the upshot:

The exciting news — US Fish & Wildlife Service has now filed additional comments in the Brookings routing docket.  To access the entire docket, go to www.puc.state.mn.us, then “Search Documents” and then search for08-1474.  These just were filed, though the letter is dated last Friday, and they’re pretty direct.  :
