$4B Champlain Hudson Power Express Project Approved by NYS Legislators

The New York State Public Service Commission has given the green-light to a clean-energy project to send Canadian hydropower to New York City. News of the approvals brings the city and state one step closer in the crucial effort to reduce reliance on fossil fuel use. The $4 billion Champlain Hudson Power Express project involves the construction of 339 miles of transmission lines to carry power from hydroelectric dams in Quebec to Astoria, Queens; and with state and federal permits already in place to begin construction, operation is expected to begin in 2025.
