Okay, stop laughing, PJM really, really cares for you!!! Really, they do, you believe them, right?
A couple of reporters from The Shepherdstown Chronicle got to the rotten, black, shriveled heart of the PATH project while researching a story this week. Good job, ladies! They got the story that all the other big media outlets missed.
"She said after analyzing the transmission needs of the area, the company will undergo what is called the 'stakeholder process.' DuPont-Kidd said this means talking with those who have a say in if the line should be built. She said by the fall, based on the analysis and stakeholder results, PJM will make a presentation to its board."
We have until fall before PATH makes its encore with PJM's newly manufactured "need" projections.
And who are these "stakeholders" supposed to be? Seems like the "stakeholders" should properly be the regulatory commissions of the three states involved, since they are the only ones at this point who actually have the final authority. And what is PATH doing? They're burning their bridges with arrogant filings and by trying to skip out without providing the results of studies ordered by the Virginia State Corporation Commission.
Why are they guarding the results of these tests so vociferously? Perhaps those results will make their planned rebirth this fall as a B-movie zombie impossible.
