The New York Public Service Commission (PSC) on Thursday approved a 93-mile, $854 million transmission project that includes a new line planned to run from Oneida County to Albany County. The 345-kV transmission line will help the state meet renewable energy goals set by the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA).
LS Power Grid New York and the New York Power Authority (NYPA) will jointly develop the transmission line, the Marcy to New Scotland Upgrade Project, which also includes new and upgraded substations and the replacement of older transmission towers.
Staff of the New York Department of Public Service on Tuesday published a long-awaited power grid study, outlining work needed for the state to meet CLCPA goals. The Marcy to New Scotland project was among those the study assumed would be completed.
