New England roots. Global expertise.
New England ratepayers deserve a new, affordable clean energy option. Harnessing Canadian hydropower and wind resources for transmission from Québec, Central Maine Power’s New England Clean Energy Connect will deliver tens of millions of dollars in annual cost savings to Maine and Massachusetts consumers – all while meeting greenhouse gas reduction targets.
New England Clean Energy Connect interconnects at Central Maine Power's Lewiston substation, one of the newest and strongest points in the New England Energy System. Central Maine Power completed a $1.4 billion upgrade to ensure reliable delivery of clean energy resources - on time and under budget.
The development of clean energy and respect for our environment serve as the pillars for New England Clean Energy Connect's energy production model.
Central Maine Power's transmission proposal was selected as a solution for the Massachusetts Clean Energy Initiative. The New England Clean Energy Connect will advance as the alternative if the Northern Pass Transmission project fails to secure its New Hampshire permit by March 27.
“We are next door to the largest hydro project in Maine - Wyman Dam. We have a front row seat on the expansion of renewable energy in New England, and we like what we see. "
