North America Transmission
North America Transmission, an affiliate of LS Power, is proposing a plan for transmission upgrades in response to Governor Cuomo’s Energy Highway Initiative. The plan includes:
- Edic-Fraser – a new overhead 345 kV alternating current transmission line from the existing Edic Substation in Oneida County, NY to the existing Fraser Substation in Delaware County, NY and a new series compensation station.
- New Scotland-Pleasant Valley – a new overhead 345 kV alternating current transmission line from the existing New Scotland Substation in Albany County NY to the existing Leeds substation in Greene County, NY to the existing Pleasant Valley substation in Dutchess County, NY.
- In accordance with Governor Cuomo's 2014 State of the State address and guidance from the PSC, several alternatives to the New Scotland-Pleasant Valley line have been developed.
These projects are in the early planning stages. More information about the projects, the permitting process, and answers to frequently asked questions can be found on this website.
