The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has scheduled their quarterly meeting for this week, December 19th.
MVP Southgate is on the agenda and we anticipate that they will make the decision on whether or not to grant the Certificate of Public Need and Convenience. This permit is the first step required to getting other state and federal permits, and is required before moving forward with any eminent domain cases.
Duke Energy also released a report last week proposing to connect their newly approved Roxboro plant to a Transco station in Virginia, which could make the MVP Southgate project obsolete for their capacity and economics. However, Dominion and other suppliers may still be behind the push for MVP Southgate. We are working with a team at Sierra Club and Southern Environmental Law Center to understand what exactly this could mean for Southgate.
At this moment, there is no action to be taken by the general public, but when the 401 permit application is submitted, we will need ALL THE HELP WE CAN GET.
