Champlain VT, LLC, doing business as TDI-New England (TDI-NE) has applied to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for a Presidential permit to construct, operate, maintain, and connect a new electric transmission line across the U.S.-Canada border in northern Vermont.
Anyone seeking to construct, operate, maintain, or connect an electric transmission facility crossing the borders of the United States must first obtain a Presidential permit issued by DOE under Executive Order (E.O.) 10485, as amended by E.O. 12038. TDI-NE proposes to build a transmission line that crosses a U.S. border, and has applied to DOE for a Presidential permit. DOE did not initiate, nor is it funding, the proposed transmission facility. DOE’s role is limited to deciding whether to issue a Presidential permit. In addition, in order to build its proposed facility TDI-NE will be required to obtain the approval of the State of Vermont.
The DOE invites you to get involved in the processes associated with this Project. You may subscribe to this website to receive updates and announcements regarding the Project.
