E-M:/ Michigan power plant siting procedures

Enviro-Mich message from Terry Lodge <tjlodge50@yahoo.com>

   I've been contacted by some people in southern
Michigan who've heard of advance plans for siting of a
new power plant in their area, preceded by development
of a large new substation, possibly for  - gasp - the
spawlistic deployment of a new industrial park.

   Who, if not the Michigan Public Service Commission,
is responsible for certifying public convenience and
necessity for new power facilities, in Michigan? Is
there any permitting requirement for the construction
of new substation load centers?

   If anyone on this list might know, kindly reply.
Many thanks.
