The Greater Springfield Reliability Project is a 39-mile, 345-kV transmission line that originates at North Bloomfield, Conn., and terminates at Ludlow, Mass. The project, which is sponsored by Northeast Utilities, originally cost $718m, but was completed underbudget at $675m. Construction of the project was completed in November 2013. The project involved 35 miles of 345 kV and 4 miles of 115 kV lines. The project will ensure reliability and reduce energy costs and includes three major substations and two switching stations. This is one of four projects that make up the New England East-West Solution (NEEWS).
