Poseidon Transmission has been developing this Project for three years. Owing to the overwhelming success of the Neptune RTS line, the developers believe there is strong support for a second intertie between PJM and Long Island. With net positive environmental impacts, great electrical benefits, substantial economic development impacts, a small geographic footprint, and public support, the members of the development team respectfully submit that development of the Poseidon line would be a unique and compelling addition to New York State’s energy infrastructure. Poseidon helps resolve the downstate reliability issues triggered by retirement of Indian Point while providing extraordinary energy, ratepayer, economic development, and environmental benefits to Long Island.

Substantial Environmental Benefits

Poseidon will reduce local air and water emissions on Long Island and provide residents with substantial environmental benefits at a highly attractive price.

Job Creation

The initial capital investment and indirect economic contributions put toward the project will result in important economic benefits for Long Island and the downstate region as a whole. (Read More)

Energy Cost Savings

By utilizing strategically chosen substations, Poseidon could save ratepayers more than $50 million annually.
