The cynic in me just can't get over the name PJM gave it. "Strawman". Are we talking about a straw man, or are we talking about a strawman proposal? More dumbness (or perhaps arrogance) from the cartel?
Guess what? AEP supports the cartel's strawman to consider possible changes to the RTEP.
If you're a PATH opponent, you need to pay attention to what's going on at PJM. We've all experienced what happens when we fail to babysit the children... they run wild! Keep an eye on PJM's website (it's really not as confusing as it looks) and perhaps show up for one of their meetings to hear what goes on behind your back.
Make no mistake. PATH is not over for them.
They're trying to keep their FERC incentives alive.
They're trying to keep their federal EIS application alive.
They're trying to keep the battle for approval of the Mt. Airy substation alive.
And keep in mind what AEP's big cheese said on the day of the "suspension":
"We remain convinced that the project will be needed and plan to move forward with it when PJM completes its review," Morris said.
