The Champlain Hudson Power Express (CHPE) is an innovative renewable power transmission project that is ready to deliver REAL. CLEAN. POWER. to New York. The project will play a key role in the state’s energy transformation, lowering greenhouse gas emissions, creating jobs and generating billions of dollars in new investment in New York’s economy while delivering low-cost renewable energy to New York state.
CHPE is the most powerful project you’ll never see, and it is ready to provide clean energy with the resiliency and environmental safety that New York and the rest of the nation demand.
Buried line to minimize environmental and social impacts while maximizing resiliency in the face of extreme weather events
From the beginning of construction through the first 30 years of operation, CHPE will deliver $28.6 billion in economic benefits to New York state, including $1.7 billion in tax revenue for local municipalities
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.
