New York Governor Kathy Hochul has announced significant progress on the Central East Energy Connect transmission project spanning the Mohawk Valley to the Capital District. The comprehensive upgrade of transmission lines between Marcy in Oneida County and New Scotland in Albany County supports the smooth transmission of clean energy across the state.
As part of a series of announcements in celebration of Earth Week this week, Governor Hochul recognized the construction completion and energization of a new state-of-the-art Princetown substation in Schenectady County that is part of the Central East Energy Connect project. The new energy infrastructure allows for increased power transfer capacity, enables expanded renewable energy pathways, and enhances reliability and resiliency of the state power grid advancing the clean energy goals outlined in the state's Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act
