See how we’re ready to power New York into the future.
Shovel ready with support that is very
The CHPE is permitted and will be operational in 2025
Construction starts in 2021
60+ year lifespan
Wide support from communities up and down the line, labor and environmental groups
Buried line ensures reliable power delivery in natural disasters
The energy is unquestionably
Will deliver approximately 20% of remaining energy needed to meet New York state’s 2030 renewable mandates
Carbon reduction equivalent to removing 28% of cars from NYC streets
24/7 firm supply of renewable energy
Buried transmission line greatly reduces environmental and community impacts
Quickly displaces fossil fuel generation with an equally firm power supply. Without this project, 95% of energy generated downstate could be produced with fossil fuels after Indian Point retires
for our future
100% renewable power sourced from existing renewable energy facilities
$3+ billion private capital infrastructure investment in New York State
More than 2,000 well-paying jobs across New York State with a commitment to utilizing union labor
$12.8 billion forecasted in savings to New York State ratepayers
Since 2015, Harrison has been a leader at Transmission Developers, Inc., a project development company that brings large-scale renewable power to urban load centers via high voltage, direct current transmission lines.
Transmission Developers Inc. (TDI) today announced that the company’s Champlain Hudson Power Express (CHPE) project has received two authorizations, granted by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the International Boundary Commission, that clear the way for the project to finalize transmission agreements and undertake construction activities at the U.S.–Canada border.
As New York cautiously emerges from the dormancy forced by the COVID-19 pandemic, Gov. Andrew Cuomo is rightly looking at ways the state can jump-start its economy. One of his first ideas is to revive discussion of a transmission line to carry power from Canada to New York City. The Champlain Hudson Power Express, which would mostly run under Lake Champlain and the Hudson River, seems to be a useful start. It would create construction jobs and yield more of the green energy New York is mandated by its own law to shift to in coming years.
