Empire State Connector

Empire State Connector


The Empire State Connector (ESC) is a proposed 250-mile High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission line (320 kV) that would bring up to 1,250 MW of renewable resources generated in upstate NY to the downstate NYC market.

The project will install cables underground in an existing railroad right-of-way and underwater in the Hudson River. Originating near Utica, NY and terminating in NYC, the ESC will bypass congested bottlenecks in the NYISO grid that currently limit the ability of upstate generators to serve the downstate NY market.

The project is intended to support NY State’s Climate Act as well as NYC’s Climate Mobilization Act (Local Law 97).
