Group considers appeal over transmission lines

MINNESOTA - A citizens group says it's considering legal action after Minnesota regulators declined to reconsider approval of a power line project that will touch four different states.

The Citizens Energy Task Force opposes the CapX2020 transmission line project, which eleven utilities plan to build in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota and South Dakota.

The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission declined to re-hear the case, making way for a possible appeal.

The PUC modified its requirement that the Brookings line from eastern South Dakota to the Twin Cities area carry wind energy and other renewables.

The PUC allowed a way for the utilities to sidestep that if they demonstrate that meeting the rules isn't practical or isn't in customers' best interest.
