On July 11, 2022, New York Governor Kathy Hochul joined state and local leaders and executives from NextEra Energy Resources Energy Transmission (NEET) to celebrate the commissioning of the Empire State Transmission Line. The new 20-mile, 345 kV transmission line, connects the new Dysinger switchyard in Royalton, NY with the new East Stolle switchyard in Elma, NY. Construction started in March of 2021 and was completed on June 1, 2022. The project was developed through a competitive solicitation process. The new Dysinger substation, features a 700 MVA phase angle regulator, making it the new 345 kV hub in western New York. It provides a connection for seven 345 kV lines, adds capacity, and creates grid efficiencies for transmitting electricity between the Robert Moses Niagara Hydroelectric Power Plant and utility customers throughout western New York. Kudos to all involved!
