Power line near the Delaware hits snag

Power line near the Delaware hits snag

The power line would still be very close to the Delaware River,
across from Wayne County, according to this segment from
an NYRI map released in February of this year

MONTICELLO NY – New York Regional Interconnection, Inc., the company that wants to build a power line from Oneida County to Orange County, with a portion of it running very close to the Delaware River, has hit a snag.   A system reliability study was rejected by the Operating Committee of the New York Independent System Operator.

Among those companies expressing concern about NYRI’s study were Con Edison, Orange and Rockland Utilities, Central Hudson and Long Island Power Authority.

“Principal among the problems were the voltage effects in the Hudson Valley and a 500 megawatt reduction in the thermal transfer limit interface with Con Ed,” said Sullivan County Planning Commissioner William Pammer.

“Essentially, they have to address those deficiencies.”
Sullivan County is one of eight counties that comprise CARI – Communities Against Regional Interconnect, and Pammer said the rejected reliability study will mean NYRI will have to hire more experts to resolve the issues involved.

The NYRI project has raised a lot of concern on the Pennsylvania side of the river because of its proximity to the Upper Delaware corridor.
