Columbia County Transmission Project

The Columbia County Transmission Project consists of four 34.5-kV electric feeders that would be a combination of new and rebuilt lines over a total distance of about 27 miles, a set of new parallel 115-kV electric transmission lines on a total right of way (ROW) length of about one mile, and a new 115/34.5-kV substation. The project will bring a new source into the Chatham area of NYSEG’s Mechanicville Division and will eliminate the need to drop load upon loss of the Churchtown to Craryville 115-kV line. Construction should begin soon, with completion expected on August 30, 2018. According to THUB calculations, the project has an estimated cost of $25.2m.
