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
The Champlain Hudson Power Express (CHPE) project announced that the independent committee responsible for distributing more than $117 million in funding for environmental protection projects over the next three decades voted unanimously to unlock $12 million dollars ahead of schedule.
Hydro-Québec and Transmission Developers (TDI) announced today that the Champlain Hudson Power Express (CHPE) has finalized and submitted its contract with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to deliver hydropower to New York City.
The other project, Champlain Hudson, is even more ambitious, reaching 339 miles to pull down enough hydropower to deliver 20 percent of the energy New York City uses on an average day. Sophie Brochu, president and chief executive of Canada’s state-owned utility, Hydro-Québec, which will supply the power, called it “an umbilical cord” from the dams in the far reaches of Québec to Queens.
