The Energy Department plans a series of meetings in the coming weeks on development of the Grain Belt Express Transmission Line Project that will carry wind powered electricity from southwest Kansas through Missouri and to Illinois.

The six public “scoping meetings” will focus on the project’s Environmental Impact Statement. They will be held in Dodge City and Great Bend, Kansas as well as Moberly and St. Joseph, Missouri. Two others will be virtual meetings.
