PATH intervention deadline set

By Staff | Jul 3, 2009

The Public Service Commission of West Virginia today ordered that July 13, 2009, at 4 pm, will be the final day petitions to intervene will be accepted in the Potomac-Appalachian Transmission Highline, or Path, case.

Intervening parties are formal participants in the case responsible for answering discovery requests from other parties, presenting their position through written testimony and being available for cross examination at the evidentiary hearing. In order intervene in a Commission case, a letter including the case number, the name and address of the petitioner, the name and addresses of the petitioner’s attorney (if any), and clear and concise statement of the grounds for intervention and a statement outlining the relief desired must be filed with the Executive Secretary of the Commission.

Alternatives for participating in a Commission case without formal intervention include writing a letter to the Commission or speaking at a Commission-sponsored public comment hearing. Letters and hearing transcripts are official case documents considered by the Commission when making its decision.
