Power Lines Update Presentation

Gearing up for a major technical conference with the Public Service Commission (PSC) in Albany next month, the Hudson Valley Smart Energy Coalition (HVSEC) has commissioned an exhaustive study of consumer-demand vs. projected supply of all existing and new electric generation and transmission projects impacting our Mid-Hudson region. The study provides a clear-eyed analysis showing how our region’s, including New York City, peak electricity demand needs are met well into the future without the addition of new high-voltage power lines in the Hudson Valley.

The study’s findings was presented to the public on July 11, 2015 by Bard College Research Professor of Environmental Science, Dr. Gidon Eshel, Ph.D. and members of the Hudson Valley Smart Energy Coalition.
