Tell Me Why We are Building a New Line Again?

This map shows it all. The yellow lines are existing right-of-ways for transmission lines. The black line is the proposed line through Harford and York counties. Transource claims they cannot use the existing lines. Possibly not as they exist now, but PJM can certainly work out a plan with PECO and any other electric company involved to revamp the existing right-of-ways if these new lines were actually needed (which they are not). Especially since it is the electric companies near DC and VA that stand to benefit (not their consumers as they like to claim, unless you think 89 cents per year is a great benefit). 

But then no one makes money if they don't build lines, do they?
