We agree wholeheartedly with Governor Cuomo that now is the time to build and now is the time to jumpstart New York’s renewable future. We commend the Governor and the State for their nation-leading clean energy goals and the Champlain Hudson Power Express is ready to meet the Governor’s call to expedite bringing renewable hydropower from Canada directly to New York City.
