CapX2020 power line opponents file lawsuit in Dane County

  • 0

Opponents of a 48-mile high-voltage transmission line from Minnesota to western Wisconsin filed a petition in Dane County Circuit Court on Thursday asking a judge to reverse state approval of the plans.

NoCapX2020 and the Citizens Energy Task Force claim the Public Service Commission used erroneous information and unfair procedures when it approved the $211 million project on May 30.

The line, from the Rochester, Minn., area to the Holmen area will be the final segment of CapX2020, a 700-mile series of transmission lines starting in the Dakotas.
