A formal application for a major high-voltage power line going across West Central Illinois has been filed with the Illinois Commerce Commission.

Clean Line Energy Partners today announced the proposed route for the Illinois portion of the Grain Belt Express Clean Line, a 780-mile overhead direct-current transmission line for wind energy going from Kansas to Indiana.

The proposed route was included in an application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity that was filed with the ICC.
