The Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC) has scheduled two public hearings to give Kansas residents an opportunity to learn more about and make comments on an electric transmission line siting application filed by NextEra Energy. NextEra Energy is requesting permission to site a 94-mile, 345 kV electric transmission line connecting the Wolf Creek Substation in Coffey County to the Blackberry Substation in Jasper County, Missouri, less than one mile over the state line. If the proposed route is approved, the line will pass through five Kansas counties: Coffey, Anderson, Allen, Bourbon and Crawford. The first public hearing will be held on March 1 at Iola High School, 300 E. Jackson Street, Iola, KS. The second public hearing will be held on March 2 at the Girard Public Library, 128 W. Prairie Avenue, Girard, KS.
