  • Back in 1955, the United States Congress reached  the idea of an interstate highway system. Now, we  

  • need a similar effort to build out a zero-carbon  interconnected energy system in the United States.

  • We're seeing challenges across the  country, whether it be California or Texas,  

  • with the need for new infrastructureAnd we see a lot of discussion now  

  • the importance of transmission to  help connect renewable energy but  

  • help to make sure that our grid is  stable and capable to move forward.

  • Right now, in Quebec, there is existing hydro  resources that they haven't been able to get out  

  • of the province. This transmission line will  take that extra hydro energy that is really  

  • being wasted right now and deliver it into the  form of clean electricity into Lewiston, Maine.

  • It's about two nuclear power plants size of  energy. If you look at it from a sequestration  

  • capability, it would be a similar toforest, just about the size of Vermont,  

  • pulling carbon out of the atmosphere every  year. It's three to 3.6 million tons of carbon.

  • What this project does is it bringsnew, huge source of baseload hydro energy  

  • into the New England transmission grid.

  • Right now, we're on track with  construction to have the line  

  • and the converter station in  service by the end of 2023.

  • 72 percent of this project is on existing  

  • transmission line right away  like you see here behind us.

  • The other percentage was carefully  sited so that we avoided sensitive  

  • conservation areas in western Maine.

  • My biggest hope for the project is that everybody  will see how beneficial this project has been and  

  • will be to the state of Maine, both for achieving  carbon reduction goals in the state of Maine,  

  • but also the jobs and economic boost  this project has brought to the region.

  • We have many states in the United States  that are producers of coal, oil and gas

  • We have many differences of opinion about the  direction, but, fortunately, around 70 percent  

  • of Americans in survey after survey say climate  change is serious. We must go to renewables.

  • As the US is moving to a zero-carbon  power system, building out the US grid,  

  • and also interconnecting with Canada, Mexico and  beyond, will become part of the strategy that's  

  • already part of the infrastructure spending  that is getting on to the books this year.
