UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

The Department of Energy’s flawed implementation of regional designations known as National Interest Electric Transmission Corridors resulted in a court decision on behalf of 10 states and 15 environmental and conservation groups.

According to the court, they determined "that DOE failed to properly consult with the affected States in conducting the Congestion Study and failed to undertake any environmental study for its NIETC Designation as required by the National Environmental Protection Act (“NEPA”), 42 U.S.C. § 4332(C)."
