Vermont Green Line

The Vermont Green Line is a proposed 59 mile underground and underwater transmission line from Beekmantown, New York to New Haven Vermont where it will bring approximately 400 megawatts of electricity to New England. The electricity being brought onto the grid which is marketed as “clean and renewable” is from Canadian hydro sources.

The estimated cost of this project is forecasted at $600 million. The permit application for this transmission line was withdrawn in November of 2017; however, with the Northern Pass being rejected in New Hampshire, it is possible that this alternative will be considered again.
