Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced $341 million in funding to advance the New York Power Authority’s plan to rebuild and strengthen the Moses-Adirondack transmission lines - a vital 86-mile stretch of New York’s North-South power transmission system. The Governor also announced a $294 million contract, as part of that funding, for project construction that was approved this week by the New York Power Authority Board of Trustees. The project, known as the Moses-Adirondack Smart Path Reliability Project, supports the Governor’s recent State-of-the-State proposal to modernize New York’s energy system to help carry renewable energy from Northern New York to other parts of the state and will help meet New York’s clean energy goals set forth in the New York Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, signed into law in July 2019. “The rebuilding of our North to South transmission lines is a major infrastructure investment and vital piece of our clean energy future that will boost upstate economies and create jobs,” said Governor Cuomo. “This project provides a critical link for the delivery of new clean energy sources being developed in Northern New York to the population centers that need their power, furthering our nation-leading efforts to build a carbon-free energy system by 2040.”
