Company wants public utility status for wind project

In November of 2010 Dave Flessner of the Chattanooga Times Free Press reported that Clean Line Energy Partners, a Houston, Texas-based power transmission company, had proposed a $3.5 billion project with TVA to bring power from windmills in Oklahoma and Texas to customers in the Tennessee Valley.

Unfortunately the project needs approval from regulators in multiple states, and has run into some roadblocks.

According to an Associated Press report, regulators in Arkansas denied the company's request for public utility status earlier this month, and a hearing set to begin this week in Oklahoma on the subject has been continued until March.
