CMP, the sister company of Avangrid, owned by Iberdrola proposes a 145-mile swath through Western Maine from approximately Cobern Gore to Lewiston passing through many of Maine's Western Hills along it's Ridges Mountains, Valleys, and nearby communities.
Up front, it appears to be the desperate need for more power for Southern New England to wantfully waste. With the proposal comes two lines from Hydro Quebec and one additional line for Canadian Wind Power. Will the Canadian Wind Power line at some point in time be used as a Main connector line to later attach more Wind from Maine's Western portion of the State? Possibly!
However, could this along with a Northeastern line through Maine proposed by MEPCO, which is comprised of both CMP and EMERA MAINE (owned by Emera Canada) be for the purpose of Negative Pricing the electric market. This gives the appearance that Renewable Energy Sources of Wind or Solar are reducing the cost of overall power on the Grid to the average consumer, however..... Are they edging other sources out of existence?
