Grain Belt Express now has approval from three of four states for construction of the high-voltage transmission line that would carry wind-generated power from Kansas to Indiana.
Members of the Illinois Commerce Commission on Thursday approved the 206-mile central Illinois section of the power line from the Mississippi River near Quincy to the state line near Sullivan, Indiana. The power line would cross sections of Pike, Scott, Greene, Macoupin, Montgomery, Christian, Shelby, Cumberland and Clark counties in Illinois.
On a 3-2 vote, commissioners required project developer Clean Line Energy Partners of Houston to complete financing for the project before construction could start and to get commission approval for any cost to Illinois ratepayers. Clean Line could not expand the project without commission approval and was ordered to take steps to minimize the effects of construction and the transmission line.
