Review of Proposed Transmission Lines
Synapse reviewed several proposals to build new transmission lines to link Maine with the New Brunswick Canada electric system. One of these proposed lines would be a new link with the Maine Public Service Company (MPS) system in northern Maine. Another new line would be a second 345 kV transmission link between New England and New Brunswick. In addition, Synapse evaluated requests by MPS and Eastern Maine Electric Cooperative to reserve capacity on the proposed second 345 kV link between New England and New Brunswick. Project completed in January 2006.
