Northern Maine Reliability


The Northern Maine Independent System Administration predicted near-term reliability issues in their territory, which is not directly electrically connected to the rest of  Maine and the ISO New England. Synapse was hired to assist the Maine OPA in their investigation of the various options being proposed to solve the reliability need, including simple transformer upgrades, additional transmission links to New Brunswick, and large transmission projects that would connect Northern Maine to the ISO New England. Ultimately, a simple and low-cost transformer upgrade project was approved by the ME PUC.
