There is no news coming out of the PJM puzzle palace about PATH, so we have to rely on little bits of information that come our way.
I spent the day at the WV Legislature today and spoke with a very prominent legislative leader. He told me that he recently met with FirstEnergy officials, and he asked them pointblank if they had any plans to proceed with PATH.
The answer? PATH is not even on FirstEnergy’s radar screen anymore.
This is complete hearsay, but it is pretty reliable. Yet FERC continues to allow FirstEnergy and AEP to collect our money for their zombie project. There needs to be an open and transparent end to PATH as soon as possible.
There is no “abeyance” when a project is dead. Citizens should not have to rely on rumor and secondhand information to find out the truth.
