ATC studies possible line carrying electricity from La Crosse to Madison
Three companies have spent the last year studying the idea of putting an electric transmission line from La Crosse to Madison.
But now, the American Transmission Co., says it's considering an even bigger line along the same route.
And it would carry green electricity made by wind power in the Great Plains.
ATC president John Procario says his firm is looking at a 765,000 volt line, more than twice as powerful as any existing power line in Wisconsin.
