The Huntley-Wilmarth project required two approvals from the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (Commission) - a Certificate of need and a Route Permit. The Commission determines whether the project is needed and, if it is needed, the route for the project. In 2019 the Commission voted in favor of the project and decided on the final route.
