LIUNA is committed to building the infrastructure and clean energy generation the state needs to power our new green-energy economy. We support new wind and solar farms, we support the state’s offshore wind, and we support connecting existing clean hydropower to needed markets. We support the completion of the Champlain Hudson Power Express.
The Champlain Hudson Power Express is one such project. The buried and resilient electric transmission line will create more than 2,000 construction-related jobs for New Yorkers, add millions in tax revenue annually to local governments that desperately need the funding and bring firm, green energy to New York City, satisfying the power needs of over 1 million residents for more than 50 years. The project will do this while reducing harmful emissions and helping the Governor and Mayor move towards a more renewable, sustainable future.
Transmission Developers Inc. (TDI) today announced that the Open Solicitation process for transmission capacity on its Champlain Hudson Power Express (CHPE) will begin on June 23, 2020. TDI will solicit expressions of interest from qualified parties willing to acquire firm project transmission rights on the 333-mile, 1,000 MW, underground and underwater HVDC electric power transmission line.
