Mill C Hydro Project

As part of our commitment to provide safe, reliable service to all our customers, New York State Electric & Gas Corp. (NYSEG), in conjunction with our parent company – AVANGRID, is updating the delivery system in our service areas. These upgrades comply with new electric transmission reliability requirements. While making investments to meet the community’s growing energy demands, we are working closely with our neighbors to ensure that all improvements are performed with minimal disruption to the environment and the communities we serve.

 

Mill C Hydro Intake Project

NYSEG owns and maintains a number of hydroelectric generating facilities in New York State, within Clinton County, that provide clean renewable energy to serve the needs of residents and businesses in the region. As a result of the growing needs of our communities, we are investing in our system to make enhancements to existing electric generating assets and electric infrastructure in upstate New York. Therefore, we will be undertaking a local project at our Mill C Development of the Saranac River Hydroelectric Project to increase reliability of our generating assets in Clinton County.
