CHPE Supporters

The Champlain Hudson Power Express is an overwhelmingly positive project for the people of New York, addressing the State's dynamic energy needs now and into the future. The project's abundant benefits include reducing power prices by $650 million per year for New York's consumers and the creation of thousands of new jobs in the State.

These benefits are the basis for the support from a broad spectrum of business interests, environmental organizations, labor groups, local governments including the City of New York, state agencies, 20 members of New York State's congressional delegation, and other interested parties. All of these have stepped forward to support the clean energy, job creation, and savings this project brings to people of New York State.
