The Missouri Public Service Commission has approved an application which grants Transource Missouri, LLC a certificate of convenience and necessity to own, operate and maintain a switch station in DeKalb County that will connect the Osborn Wind Energy Center with Transource Missouri’s Nebraska City-Mullin Creek-Sibley transmission line.
In approving the application, the commission determined there is a need for the service; Transource Missouri is qualified to provide the proposed service; Transource Missouri has the financial ability to provide the service; the proposal is economically feasible; and the service will promote the public interest.
In a filing with the commission on Sept. 20, the PSC Staff recommended the application be approved.
“Based on the commission’s impartial and independent review of Transource Missouri’s application and staff’s verified and uncontested recommendation, the commission finds that the requested CCN (certificate of convenience and necessity) meets the five criteria for granting a CCN and is necessary and convenient for the public service,” according to the commission.
