Welcome to New York Transco
New York Transco is New York-based owner and developer of bulk power transmission facilities in New York State. Our mission is to plan, develop, and own new high-voltage electric transmission projects in New York State designed to reduce energy prices for customers, facilitate the growth of renewable generation sources to meet State environmental and economic requirements, and ensure long-term grid reliability. New York Transco is committed to advancing projects with community input and regular dialogue.
In June 2016, New York Transco energized three new projects: Ramapo to Rock Tavern; Fraser-Coopers; and, Staten Island Unbottling. These transmission upgrades contribute to reliability with potential generator retirements and also significantly reduce upstate to downstate transmission congestion to save money for electricity customers.
New York Transco’s New York Energy Solution (NYES), a transmission upgrade project, was competitively selected by the New York ISO and approved by the New York Public Service Commission to relieve upstate to downstate transmission congestion and deliver more renewable energy to customers. NYES highlights innovation, technology and commitment to community engagement. Rock Tavern to Sugarloaf, a transmission line and station upgrade in Orange County, is also being developed by New York Transco.
Ramapo - Rock Tavern 345 kV Line
A second 345 kV transmission line was installed on existing double circuit towers between a new 345/138 kV Substation at Sugarloaf and Central Hudson’s existing, but now expanded, Rock Tavern 345 kV substation in northern, Orange Country. The project also allows an existing 15 mile feeder between Ramapo and Sugarloaf stations that had been operating at 138V to operate at 345 kV, adding a total of 27 miles of new 345 kV transmission between Con Edison’s Ramapo and the Rock Tavern substations.
Fraser - Coopers Corners 345 kV line with Reactive Support
21 miles of a 345 kV transmission line was re-conductored and 240 MVAR series capacitor bank was added between NYSEG’s 345 kV Fraser substation near Delhi, New York and Coopers Corners substation near Monticello, New York. The project also included the replacement of 12 towers and refurbishment of 20 existing towers.
