PSC approves the NY Energy Solution Project
MidHudson News is reporting the state Public Service Commission has approved the New York Energy Solution Project, a 54.5-mile, 345-kilovolt transmission line at a cost of $530 million. The line will start in Rensselaer County and extend to Dutchess County, beginning in the town of Schodack, and onto Stuyvesant, Stockport, Ghent, Claverack, Livingston, Gallatin, and Clermont in Columbia County; and the towns of Milan, Clinton and Pleasant Valley in Dutchess County. The line, owned by New York Transco, is intended to "speed the flow of energy to high-demand markets and consumers downstate." The project will upgrade and replace existing 80-year-old structures with about 230 fewer, more modern structures. Read the full story at MidHudsonNews [dot] com.
