Atlantic Link is a 1,000-megawatt (MW) capacity high voltage-direct current (HVDC) subsea transmission cable that will reliably and cost-effectively deliver fixed-price, carbon-free energy from Atlantic Canada to Massachusetts for 20 years, and beyond. This project is being proposed by Emera Inc. subsidiary Clean Power Northeast Development Inc. (CPNE), in response to the Massachusetts Clean Energy RFP that was issued March 31, 2017 by the state’s electric distribution companies (EDCs).
Under Emera’s proposal, the approximately 375-mile Atlantic Link cable will deliver onshore wind, firmed by hydro power, directly to Massachusetts through new facilities connected to existing transmission infrastructure adjacent to Entergy’s soon-to-retire Pilgrim Station in Manomet.
