The $2.5 billion "SOO Green" project has succeeded thus far where others have failed for two key reasons: It will run underground -- meaning no eyesore overhead wiring -- and it will be placed along the preexisting Canadian Pacific Railway, largely sidestepping eminent domain disputes with landowners. https://www.soogreenrr.com
"The future is now, and now is the time to build out a national electric grid that can deliver clean energy to the cities and towns that need it," Direct Connect CEO Trey Ward told CNN. "It will be the largest infrastructure project of our lifetime and it will be good for our children."
Watch this video. No need to wait for the politicians of either party. Great projects, like SOO Green, that make sense and deliver value to customers will get built.
Note that undergrounding and RR right of way make the routing and permitting of this project so much easier by eliminating major challenges with better planning and design! A “new paradigm” of thinking.
