A proposed 57-mile powerline in Ogle, DeKalb, Kane and DuPage counties may never get off the ground. Administrative Law Judges Terrance A. Hilliard and Heather Jorgenson issued a proposed order in early September rejecting the 345kV ComEd Grand Prairie Gateway Project. 

On December 2, 2013, ComEd filed a petition with the ICC seeking a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity to authorize the utility to install, operate, and maintain the project and related facilities. The Illinois Commerce Commission will rule on the Petition before October 24, 2014, but the proposed order puts a severe dent in ComEd’s plans.

The judges’ order cites ComEd’s inability to provide an adequate alternative route for 20 percent of the line.
