Missouri panel questions adding multistate wind energy line

( KTRS ) A panel of regulators has raised concerns with one company’s request to construct a power line in Missouri for a multistate wind energy project.

Three of the five members of the state’s Public Service Commission Tuesday spoke against plans for the Grain Belt Express, foreshadowing a likely order against it. The Clean Line Energy Partners’ $2.2 billion project would transmit electricity from Kansas, across northern Missouri and Illinois to Indiana.

Commissioners cast doubt on whether access to more wind power was worth concerns raised by property owners.

Others questioned the benefit to Missouri ratepayers. The commission also, unanimously approved a contact with Ameren Transmission Co. of Illinois to construct about seven miles of power line from Palmyra, Missouri to the Missouri state line.
