Hydro-Quebec halts work on its part of hydropower corridor
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Hydro-Quebec is temporarily stopping construction in Canada on its section of a hydropower transmission corridor.
Hydro-Quebec advised a regulatory agency that it hopes to be able to resume construction “and remains convinced of the value, merits and importance of the project.”
In Maine, environmental regulators suspended a permit for the 145-mile (233-kilometer) portion.
The project aims to bring up to 1,200 megawatts of hydropower to the New England power grid.
