Direct Community Benefits

During its construction, Poseidon will create approximately 250 skilled construction jobs in partnership with local building trades and will spur additional, indirect job creation on Long Island and in New Jersey.

Poseidon’s construction will include the creation of new $100+ million converter stations in Melville and South Brunswick, assets that will generate new tax revenue for local New Jersey and Long Island communities. Importantly, local communities will realize these benefits without any additional burden on government services.

Poseidon will drive economic competitiveness in Long Island by helping to make energy more affordable and reliable for residents and businesses.

Project Overview

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.

Environmental Benefits

The greatest single challenge in the development of renewable energy remains its cost. 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.
