For the last several weeks, AEP/Allegheny FirstEnergy mouthpieces have been telling the WV media that PJM has to build both the Mt. Storm to Doubs rebuild project and PATH so that the Mt. Storm to Doubs line can be taken off line for the construction work.
Oops. Look what PJM just did. PJM has approved and scheduled outages in Mt. Storm to Doubs during off peak seasons for the next three years so that Dominion can take Mt. Storm to Doubs off line any time they need to. And there’s no PATH line in sight.
But the power company fact free blather made it into several news accounts about Alternative One, and none of the reporters involved questioned this obvious falsehood.
