New York Regional Interconnect (NYRI) PSC application commences

The New York Public Service Commission has informed New York Regional Interconnect, Inc. (NYRI)  that its application to construct a 190-mile high voltage tranmission line from upstate (Marcy) to downstate (New Windsor) is complete.

The proceeding is on the fast track as if no decision is forthcoming within a year of the August 8, 2008 filing of the complete application, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) may step in and preempt the PSC. The PSC will hold public fora on the proposal in different locations throughout the state.

Opposition to the transmission line is gearing up for a fight, as reported in the Daily Star.
