Transmission Lines in the Hudson River: What you need to know about the Champlain Hudson Power Express Project and Clean Path Project

Event Date: 
Friday, April 26, 2024 - 7:30pm

In November 2021, New York finalized contracts for Clean Path, NY and Champlain Hudson Power Express (CHPE) to deliver onshore wind and solar energy from upstate New York and hydroelectric power from Canada to New York City. A significant portion of each transmission line route will be submerged under the Hudson River.  

On April 26, Riverkeeper's staff attorney Drew Gamils and Habitat Restoration Director George Jackman will provide an overview of the Clean Path and CHPE transmission projects at the Croton Yacht Club. This overview will include a description of each project, status update on each project, and a discussion of the potential environmental impacts and the Champlain Hudson Environmental Trust. This event is free and open to the public.
