Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Underground transmission lines; pilot program. Establishes a pilot program for the placement of four new transmission lines of 230 kilovolts or less to be placed underground, either in whole or in part. The bill establishes criteria for the State Corporation Commission to consider and procedures for the Commission to follow in selecting the projects. One of the projects shall be for a transmission line that has received Commission approval prior to the effective date of the act. If a qualifying project provides radial rather than networked electric service, a presumption of need is created in applications for transmission lines that will complete the network.
