Invenergy and Hydro Quebec are to deliver renewable energy to the ISO New England bulk transmission system through the 60-mile 400MW Vermont Green Line.
The Vermont Green Line is being developed by Anbaric and National Grid, which joined forces in 2014 to develop transmission lines to bring renewable energy into New England.
The cable system is designed to link Beekmantown, New York with New Haven, Vermont via a cable to be buried along public roadways and submerged beneath the waters of Lake Champlain.
Invenergy vice president of development Kevin Parzyck said: “Invenergy works to solve the energy challenges that face our communities and we are proud to work with Hydro-Québec, Anbaric and National Grid on this exciting opportunity in New England.
“Combining wind generation with firming hydro will positively transform energy supply in the region.”
