The parent company of the electric utility Emera Maine hopes to establish an undersea cable linking electricity generators in northern Maine, Newfoundland, Labrador and Nova Scotia with users in Massachusetts.
So now we have competing efforts to bring Northern Maine Wind and Solar to the south. One by the proposed MEPCO line and yet another by this Atlantic Link line. Yet MEPCO (CMP/Emera Maine) wish to destroy more Maine Land for a transmission line. The Atlantic Link is yet Another Reason why they do not need an overland CORRIDOR as they have termed it. Unless as Corinna residents suspect, a gas line in the future. There can not be that much capacity to warrant the need for both projects.
This is industrial wind piggy backing on what NALCOR was going to build anyway to get the energy from Muskrat Falls in Labrador to New York City.
