COLCHESTER, Vt. — A Massachusetts developer is hoping to carry renewable electricity from northern New York to the New England power grid via a power line that would run under Lake Champlain.

The proposal by the company called Anbaric Transmission would carry 400 megawatts of electricity from Plattsburgh, under the lake to Vermont.

Anbaric CEO Ed Krapels says utilities in Massachusetts and Connecticut need more renewable power in their mix to meet clean-energy mandates.

The project is called the Grand Isle Intertie.

Krapels tolds Vermont Public Radio the exact route has not been determined. The cost of the project would be borne by the users, not Vermont ratepayers.
