The line will run under Lake
Champlain to deliver hydropower to southern New England.
|MONTPELIER, Vt. — A power line planned to run under Lake Champlain and link suppliers in Canada with consumers in southern New England has won a key federal permit, clearing its last big regulatory hurdle.
Transmission Developers Inc. announced Monday its TDI-New England subsidiary had received a presidential permit from the U.S. Department of Energy for the 154-mile, $1.2 billion power line, dubbed the New England Clean Power Link. CEO Donald Jessom said construction could start in late 2017 or early 2018.
I sure hope you are correct Eskutassis!
I have a strong feeling that the current administration sees the writing on the wall that his total agenda on climate is about to be wiped clean, and might just need to have SOMETHING positive he will be remembered by. Wind turbines and solar panels will soon be a thing of the past, and only what is left to rust and deteriorate will remind us of the misguided folly.
6 places where Canadian ownership of the lines protrude into the U.S. is clearly identifiable. Not sure if this is direct Canadian in Maine or through their Emera Maine Laundry of profit siphoning.
If you click on the green tag markers, it should open a popup showing the lake & owner/operator. After studying it further, I came to a conclusion (maybe wrongly) the ends of the Canadian ownership of the actual lines by their U.S. counterparts such as Emera Maine. That which exists but is not shown herein is probably companies like CMP which of course is now Iberdrola, but considered U.S. though probably falsely in many States.
What an awesome map, Eric Tuttle!

This appears to be an old rendition as the $5.2B MEPCO line and the Stud Mill Consolidate line are both completed.
Hydro! Obama supporting Hydro!! This is a good thing - a little late but a good thing!
