SECTION 15-1731
Eminent domain; transmission lines
Environmental Conservation (ENV) CHAPTER 43-B, ARTICLE 15, TITLE 17
§ 15-1731. Eminent domain; transmission lines.

Any corporation authorized to do business in this state and engaged in
the production, sale and distribution of heat, light or power to the
public may exercise the right of eminent domain pursuant to the
provisions of the eminent domain procedure law to acquire property
necessary for the construction of transmission lines for such heat,
light and power, when necessary for such sale and distribution to the
public. If the corporation is a licensee under title 17 of this article
it may apply to, and in a proper case receive from, the Public Service
Commission a certificate of convenience and necessity for any property
so required in the manner and with like effect as provided in paragraph
c of subdivision 4 of section 15-1729. The court in such proceedings of
condemnation may prescribe any reasonable limitations, restrictions or
regulations for the construction and operation of such lines so as to
protect life and prevent unnecessary injury to property.
