Champlain Hudson Power Express (CHPE)
The North American Megadam Resistance Alliance (NAMRA) is also currently working to fight the Champlain Hudson Power Express (CHPE). This transmission corridor would bring Canadian hydropower to New York City to help them meet their “clean energy” goals. The transmission corridor is now being touted by NYC politicians as an economic stimulus which will help the state recover from the economic crisis caused by Covid-19; however, according to CHPE’s 2014 Environmental Impact Statement, the corridor will only create 26, direct, full time jobs and up to 300 temporary construction jobs. The corridor will cost an estimated $3 billion and will serve as a financial pipeline for continued megadam destruction in Canada.
