Utility Energy has agreed to purchase 500MW of power from Plains & Eastern via an intermediate converter station in Arkansas. It is not immediately clear where the balance of the line’s capacity will be sold.
Balance? Recharge News thought this article was "balanced?" It only tells one side of the story... Skelly's side. Apparently the reporter did absolutely no fact checking.
"Utility Energy" doesn't exist. There's no company named "Utility Energy," therefore it has not agreed to purchase 500 MW of power from Plains & Eastern. Or maybe the reporter MEANT to report that "Utility Entergy has agreed to purchase...". But that would also be untrue. Neither Entergy nor Clean Line's imaginary friend, Utility Energy, have agreed to purchase so much as a glow stick from Plains & Eastern.
Coulda, woulda, shoulda.
It's pretty doubtful that Clean Line will "begin construction on Plains & Eastern next year." It's pretty hard to construct a transmission line on land you don't own. What Recharge News fails to report is that landowners are refusing all Clean Line's advances.
The LLC will educate members and other interested parties on our issues regarding the Plains & Eastern project, condemnation (eminent domain), and landowners' rights, especially as they affect property values and agricultural/recreational operations.
The LLC will take those steps necessary to help protect property owner interests, including but not limited to addressing environmental, economic and health impacts, and helping to protect and improve landowners' property rights, including the mitigation of potential liabilities.
To evaluate ALL options available to address the potential impacts from the Project, including, but not limited to:
- Legal action in defense of landowner rights
- Negotiation of the right-of-way easement terms that benefit landowners now and in the future

And there Skelly stands, waving his hands around and making up imaginary customers, like "Utility Energy." He doesn't have any real customers. And he won't have any real customers, because all the good imaginary customers will only "...commit once they see the project meeting critical milestones towards the start of construction." But Clean Line won't be meeting any milestones until it has land rights. And it can't get land rights until it has customers. Chicken, egg. Rock:Clean Line:Hard Place.
Skelly needs to quit making crap up. And the trade press needs to stop reporting made up crap.
Imaginary friends are only cute when you're five.
