Public comment sought at hearing on ComEd power line project

The Illinois Commerce Commission will hold a public hearing April 24 in Elgin to hear comments on ComEd’s Grand Prairie Gateway project, a proposal to build a new electric transmission line through Ogle, DeKalb, Kane and DuPage counties.

The hearing will begin at 7 p.m. in the Hemmens Auditorium, 45 Symphony Way, Elgin.

The Grand Prairie Gateway was proposed as a means to improve electric system reliability and alleviate constraints on the electricity grid. The ICC is considering the ComEd petition to install, operate and maintain this new overhead electric transmission line and other related facilities necessary for its operation, in Docket 13-0657. Testimony in the case is available through the ICC website at www.icc.illinois.gov/docket/Search.aspx.

Written and spoken comments will be accepted at the public hearing. Interested people also may file comments through the ICC’s public comment link on the website at www.icc.illinois.gov/docket/comment/ or call the ICC’s consumer services division at 800-524-0795.
