PATH Is Dead

I have not seen anything on the Internet yet, but here is the text of an email message from Chrisie Franks, Customer Advisor, Member Relations, PJM Interconnection:

The PJM Board during a phone conference Friday decided to remove the Potomac-Appalachian Transmission Highline (PATH) and Mid-Atlantic Power Pathway (MAPP) lines from PJM’s regional transmission plans, based on the PJM staff’s recommendations.

It’s over.

  1. Shhh! PJM is hunting wabbits! You’re not supposed to pay attention to the important stuff, just the Gannett garbage on the front page of every newspaper.

    Egg + Face = PJM

    • If you had asked me four years ago if I would ever be posting the words “PATH is Dead” or “It’s over” on The Power Line, I would have thought you were crazy. But here it is. And it feels great. We beat them.

  2. I NEVER give up. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again (and be a little more creative the next time). I still remember telling Snidely Whiplash that his stupid little project wasn’t going to happen, so he should just pack up his show and hit the road, over 4 years (and $225M) ago.

    Now if someone had told me 5 years ago that I’d turn into such an energy geek…. that’s when I would have flagged down the crazy train.

    Well, it’s been fun… and more to come!

    Thanks for so patiently explaining things as many times as necessary until I got it, Bill!

  3. We had best remain vigilant. Where such sums as the amount for contruction of that project are concerned, I do not expect them to take this lying down. That represents alot of corporate jets, country club memberships, and golden prachutes. I expect them to take some kind of reprisal.
