The Missouri Public Service Commission is delaying the hearing dates on the Grain Belt Express because of motions filed by some of the parties in the case.
The hearings, originally scheduled for May 22-26 will now take place June 5-9 beginning at 9:00 each morning.
Grain Belt was granted a certificate of convenience and necessity on March 19, 2019 for a high voltage direct current transmission line across 206 miles of northern Missouri.
Grain Belt wants to relocate the Missouri converter station from Ralls to Monroe County along with increasing the capacity to 2,500 megawatts from 500 megawatts.
They also want to relocate the AC connector line from Ralls County to Monroe, Audrain, and Callaway Counties to tie into the existing McCredie Substation.
The hearings will be held in Room 310 of the Governor Office Building at 200 Madison Street in Jefferson City.
