Formal Challenge Filed with FERC

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

West Virginia citizens Ali Haverty & Keryn Newman have file a formal challenge to PATH with the Federal Energy Regulation Commission.  This is PATH’s story, as told by the money they spent. YOUR money! Although it relies on figures, the story is translated into words, so it should be easy reading. It tells the story of PATH’s campaign of influence buying through propaganda. It’s a large file, but worth the time!

Warning: Ardent 360 Scam

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

Many landowners in West Virginia, MD, and VA that are on the right of way of the proposed PATH line have received this letter from a company named Ardent 360.  This is a scam and has no affiliation to PATH, and is intended to frighten homeowners.  If you have received this call the Attorney General’s fraud hotline (410-528-8662) or/and call your attorney.

Maryland PSC to consider PATH’s motion to delay

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

On Thursday, February 24th at 10am, the Maryland Public Service Commission (PSC) will convene to discuss all open motions and petitions.  Among them is a request by Potomac Edison to delay the procedural schedule surrounding the PATH project by 6 months.  C.A.K.E.S. and interveners have sent in motions to deny the delay indicating that the application is insufficient to justify it.

The hearing will be held in the Commission’s 19th floor hearing room, William Donald Schaefer Tower, 7 St. Paul Street, Baltimore, MD 21202.
