Leeds Path West Project – North-South Solution

The Leeds Path West Project – North-South Solution is a planned system enhancement in order to address the UPNY-SENY grid constraint. The project involves five 345-kV transmission components: First, a new 345-kV line from the Empire Generator interconnection to New Scotland. Second, install a new 345-kV line from Knickerbocker substation to the Leeds substation. This line would run in an existing right-of-way from Knickerbocker to Hudson and would then run underground from the Hudson River to Leeds. Thrid, double circuit an existing 345-kV line from the Leeds substation to the Rock Tavern substation. Fourth, an optional new undergound 345-kV cable from Roseton to a new West Fishkill substation. Finally, new twin 345-kV cables from the Ramapo substation to the South Mahwah substation. The entire project is expected to be completed by 2016 and has a estimate cost of $335m.  Project marked as suspended awaiting further development activity.
