And now it’s “Grid North Partners.” … sigh… CapX 2020 is a series of transmission lines proposed for Minnesota — crisscrossing the state and affecting, just in Phase I, over 70,000 landowners. It’s transmission from the coal fields of North Dakota through Minnesota facilitating a bulk power market shipping electricity to an imagined market to the east. Utilities don’t need it, nore do we, and we don’t have to pay for it.

This site has been put together by Carol A. Overland, Attorney at Law. (overland@legalectric.org) . There’s also information at www.legalectric.org — see “Transmission for Dummies” and also search for “transmission” and “CapX” etc. The resources and documents from that site will be added here over time, but if you don’t see it here, check www.legalectric.org! If you don’t find what you’re looking for, please let me know.
