HVDC transmission developer Empire State Connector Corp. (ESC) has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Invenergy who is developing a portfolio of up to 600MW of new Upstate New York wind energy generation projects that the ESC could deliver to downstate electricity customers.

These wind generation projects represent approximately US$ 1.2 billion of new economic development activity in Upstate New York for a total of US$ 2.7 billion when combined with the US$ 1.5 billion estimated construction cost of the ESC. ESC is developing a 1,000MW HVDC transmission project known as the Empire State Connector that will allow upstate generators to physically deliver energy and capacity directly into New York City via two submarine cables buried in the Erie Canal and the Hudson River.
