Emera Proposes Construction of Atlantic Link Project

The Atlantic Link project, a 1,000 megawatt subsea transmission cable, is closer to becoming reality. The cable is approximately 375 miles and will connect Atlantic Canada to the Boston load center to be distributed throughout Massachusetts. The proposal is in response to the Massachusetts Clean Energy RFP. Emera is currently working on a similar project between Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and Labrador.
