Rulemaking and Form Amendments for Electric Transmission Certificate of Convenience And Necessity
The amendments would eliminate references to a preferred route, emphasize the importance of intervening in order to fully participate in the commission's decision on where to locate the transmission line, add the requirement to provide information to Texas Parks and Wildlife to the non-CREZ CCN application, and make other related changes. The CCN application form for a transmission line for a competitive renewable energy zone (CREZ) currently requires the applicant to provide a copy of the environmental impact assessment to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. The amendments to the CCN application form for non-CREZ transmission lines would include the same requirement.
