PCS Gets Extension For CAPX 2020

Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas has extended the Public Service Commission's decision deadline on the proposed 345-kilovolt Cap X 2020 line to December 6th in an order the PSC made public yesterday.

The proposed line, which has been met with quite a bit of criticism the past couple of weeks, would cross the Mississippi River near Alma, pass through Buffalo and Trempealeau counties before terminating at a substation near Holmen.

The PSC had determined last month that the joint application from Dairyland Power Cooperative, Xcel Energy and Wisconsin Public Power was complete but acknowledged it would need more than the 180 days it's given by statute to act on major project requests.
