Hearing set for New Prague on CapX 2020 power line proposal

The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission will hold a hearing in New Prague on a Certificate of Need for a new high voltage electric power transmission line proposed from Brookings, SD, to the southwestern Twin Cities. Parts of the proposed line could be located in Scott, Le Sueur or Rice counties, with a possible substation included in the New Prague area. The exact route has yet to be determined.

In July, 2007, a broad study area was developed for routing and approximately 21,000 landowners were notified of the proposal.
