See how we’re ready to power New York into the future.

The most powerful project you’ll never see.

Developed in anticipation of New York state’s transition from fossil fuel to clean energy, the fully buried Champlain Hudson Power Express® transmission line is ready to power New Yorkers into the future with clean, renewable hydropower. And just in time, too, as the state’s new Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) requires that New York be powered by 70 percent renewable energy by 2030. The CHPE is permitted and expected to be fully operational in spring of 2026, delivering 1,250 MW of low-cost renewable power directly into the New York Metro area.

The CHPE is a dependable, always-on supply of clean energy for New Yorkers from existing renewable energy sources. Fully permitted and expected to be fully operational in spring of 2026. This $6B project ensures that generations of New Yorkers will benefit. Wide support from communities up and down the line, as well as labor and environmental groups. Buried line ensures reliable power delivery in extreme weather.
Positions NY as the nation’s leader in the fight against climate change by transitioning away from oil and gas. Quickly displaces fossil fuel generation with an equally reliable power supply. Without this project, as much as 85-90% of the power produced Downstate will continue to come from carbon-emitting sources.

Carbon reduction of 3.9M metric tons in its first full year of operation

. Buried transmission line greatly reduces environmental, community impacts and respects neighborhoods. 
Will save New York homes and businesses $17.3 billion over 30 years through wholesale electricity costs.Generates $1.4 Billion in funding for 73 municipalities and 59 school districts. Combined with other projects underway in New York, this will be the largest increase in renewable energy, including hydropower, wind and solar, in New York state history. One of the largest infrastructure investments in NY history. Creates more than 1,400 good-paying, family-sustaining jobs across New York State with a commitment to utilizing union labor, generating more than $400 million in wages and benefits.
