As part of our commitment to provide safe, reliable service to all our customers, New York State Electric & Gas (NYSEG), in conjunction with our parent company, AVANGRID, is updating the electric transmission system in our service areas. While we are investing in upgrades to meet clean energy goals and the community’s growing energy demands, we are working closely with our neighbors so that improvements are performed safely and with minimal disruption to the environment and the community.
NYSEG is in the planning stages of a significant, multi-year electric transmission line project consisting of approximately 61 miles of new 115 kilovolt (kV) and 46kV lines in portions of Chenango, Otsego and Delaware Counties. The proposed Project, referred to as CLCPA-North Oneonta, would help meet the clean energy goals under the State’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA). In addition, the Project would provide significant benefits beyond supporting CLCPA goals by meeting Bulk Electric System (BES) reliability needs under federal requirements by mitigating multiple transmission system deficiencies.
The Project includes the construction of a new substation (Baker Hill Substation) in the Town of Oneonta near Baker Hill Road, three new 115kV electric transmission lines extending out of Baker Hill Substation, two new 46kV transmission lines, the complete and partial rebuild of two existing substations, and upgrades at two other substations (see Fact Sheet for more detail).
