It’s been quite a hectic year since our last project update so we wanted to share just a few notes on where we stand with the MPX project today.
MPX has maintained a strong partnership with ConEdison Transmission, Clearway Energy Group (formerly NRG Renewables) and other generation partners in Maine and Canada. Our development team is still committed to bringing truly renewable new Class I RPS resources online to reduce GHG emissions in the energy generation sector and fight to keep climate change at bay.
While following market trends and actions regarding other large energy proposals, we are working to refine the MPX project to reduce costs and increase efficiencies to improve the project. We are exploring alternative routes and technologies, working with NGOs on siting concerns, and participating in the ISO-NE Cluster Study process.
We are committed to developing a project that maximizes benefits to the host communities, the State of Maine and the New England ratepayers. Striking a balance between keeping energy prices low while still supporting economic and environmental initiatives through financial investments in the host communities remains a priority. We are listening carefully to the concerns of Maine citizens with the siting of energy projects and are working to shape the MPX project accordingly.
We are always open to any questions or concerns you have, so please feel free to contact us at anytime. In the meantime, we will continue working on Clean, Affordable Energy for New England.
