Two transmission line projects have had their contracts finalized, pending approval by the NYS Public Service Commission (PSC). The Champlain Hudson Power Express (CHPE) is a 339 mile direct current (DC) cable that proposes to bring 18 million megawatt-hours of hydroelectric power from Canada to the greater New York City metropolitan area. It will mostly be laid in the Hudson River by a process called jet plowing, which will cause considerable sediment resuspension.. The Clean Path NY project proposes a 174-mile underground transmission line that will deliver more than 7.5 million megawatt-hours of electricity to New York City annually from wind and solar in Western and Upstate New York.These projects must be approved by the State Public Service Commission. The comment deadline is February 7, 2022 for both projects.
