Public Service Commission maintains it was correct in denying permits to wind energy company

The company behind a controversial wind energy project slated to go through Monroe and Ralls Counties will have its day in court this week — and possibly have its final chance to get necessary permits to develop the project in Missouri.

Grain Belt Express will outline its case against the Missouri Public Service Commission (PSC) on Thursday, Feb. 8 in St. Louis before a Missouri Court of Appeals. The PSC denied Grain Belt a Certificate of Convenience and Necessity in 2017 after the prospective utility failed to prove it had gained assent — or approval to use county roads — from the county commissions along the proposed route. The PSC’s decision hinged on a Court of Appeals ruling in another case that has since required utilities to gain assent from counties before the PSC can issue its approval.
