Missouri panel OKs Ameren lines, aims to block wind power

June 02:

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A panel of Missouri regulators has voted in favor of expanding one company’s high-voltage power lines but has concerns with a multistate wind energy project.
The state’s Public Service Commission voted unanimously Tuesday for an Illinois-based branch of Ameren to build a roughly 100-mile power line in Missouri.
The line would link a route from Iowa to western Indiana.
But plans for a Grain Belt Express to carry wind energy east from the Kansas plains drew some dissent.
Three of five commissioners voiced concerns with the project, foreshadowing a likely order against it.
The commission was split on whether more access to wind power through the Grain Belt Express was worth inconveniencing property owners on whose land the power lines would be built.
