NYISO for or against proposed power line?

ALBANY – The latest comments by the group which operates New York’s bulk electric grid has elicited a response from both proponents and opponents of the proposed 190-mile electric transmission corridor which, if approved, would stretch through seven towns in Chenango County on its way from Marcy to New Windsor.



While the comments in a nine page memorandum issued by a representative of New York Independent System Operator do not speak directly in favor of, or in opposition to, the New York Regional Interconnect proposal, both sides have found items they claim support their stance.

The purpose of the statement was to provide comment on the New York State Energy Plan and was directed to Paul A. DeCotis, chairman of New York State’s Energy Planning Board.

While NYRI is not specifically mentioned in the memo, or in a comprehensive white paper on Electric Transmission Expansion issued last month by the non-profit entity, representatives of the company are citing contents of the report as an endorsement of the project.
