The Vermont Green Line Devco, LLC proposes to build a 60-mile underground and underwater electric transmission cable to deliver 400 megawatts of clean energy to New England—enough to power 240,000 homes during peak demand. The preferred cable route will interconnect with the existing power grid at a new converter station in Beekmantown, New York, travel under Lake Champlain, and connect to another new converter station in New Haven, Vermont. All land cables will be underground.
