ALBANY — The New York State Public Service Commission (Commission) today granted the request to amend the certificate granted to Champlain Hudson Power Express, Inc. to construct and operate a 1,000-megawatt (MW) transmission line extending approximately 330 miles from the New York/Canada border to a converter station in Astoria, Queens. The transmission line, estimated by the developer to cost $2 billion, would be built underwater and underground along the entire length of the route, avoiding or minimizing visual and other potential environmental impacts.
