Central Connecticut Reliability Project, planned by Northeast Utilities, is a 36-mile line, 345-kV transmission line, originating at Frostbridge, Conn., and terminating at North Bloomfield, Conn. This is one of four projects that make up the New England East-West Solution (NEEWS).The Central Connecticut Reliability Project is the last of the four projects currently under development to address transmission reliability problems in southern New England. The project is expected to cost $350 million. The project is designed to increase the capability of the transmission system to move power within Connecticut. In addition, the project will ensure reliability and help reduce energy costs.
