Transmission Developers Incorporated are trying to rile support for their proposed underwater power line spanning 350 miles from Canada to New York City via Lake Champlain and the Hudson River. The project, entitled Champlain Hudson Power Express, would help New York State meets its renewable energy goals by transmitting 1,000 megawatts of Hydroelectric and Wind energy from Canada to the grid in Westchester County.
Five public hearings have been scheduled by the New York State Public Service Commission, to determine the public level of support. Hearings are set to take place in Yonkers, Kingston, Schenectady, Whitehall and Plattsburgh.
