Transmission project Emera Maine EDP Renewables Central Maine Power wind power project Number Nine

Three companies agreed on several transmission projects to bring wind power from northern Maine to the southern portion of the state.

EDP Renewables (EDPR), Central Maine Power (CMP) and Emera Maine, a subsidiary of Emera Inc. (TSX: EMA), reached agreements that will advance the first of several transmission projects in the state. The lines will connect the 250-MW Number Nine wind project in northern Maine to the southern part of the state and Connecticut through the ISO-New England electric grid. Emera Maine and CMP are providing EDPR with an option to purchase a portion of the Bridal Path corridor to develop a new transmission line, with Emera Maine and CMP having buy-back rights to purchase EDPR’s development in the corridor.
