The 78-mile Poseidon line begins in South Brunswick, New Jersey and connects to Long Island at the Ruland Road substation in Melville. This high-voltage direct current line will be buried underground or underwater over its entire route – leaving no impact on the surrounding environment. The project will help deliver affordable renewable energy to the heart of Long Island’s transmission and distribution network.
The greatest single challenge in the development of renewable energy remains its cost. Poseidon connects Long Island to PJM, the world’s largest wholesale electricity market that now contains 10,000 megawatts of renewable energy. By making this connection, Poseidon can provide clean energy to Long Island at very attractive prices.
Poseidon provides Long Island with renewable energy at an affordable price. The project produces zero air or water emissions in New Jersey and Long Island, helping to safeguard local air quality and aquifers.
