HVDC Transmission and Renewable Energy for New England

Commitment by

Anbaric Transmission

In 2013, Anbaric Transmission committed to the pre-development phase of a proposed high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission system, called the Green Line Project. Anbaric Transmission will design the expansion of the initial project size from an intended 800 to an intended 1000 megawatts of transmission line, as well as expand the intended length of the line by more than 300 miles, from Massachusetts to Canada, in order to facilitate the importation of hydroelectric energy from Canada. The transmission line will also make possible the use of the vast wind energy resources in northern Maine. The overall goal of the pre-development work is the financing, construction and operation of the transmission project, which has an estimated cost of $2 billion.
