A Vermont utility company wants to invest $15.5 million to upgrade transmission lines and build a new substation to help reduce the strain on the power grid.
Green Mountain Power has applied for a certificate of public good to reduce congestion on the Sheffield-Highgate Export Interface.

The proposal includes building a new substation; upgrading 1.5 miles of power line in Lowell, Eden, Johnson and Morristown; and upgrading 18 miles of transmission line from Johnson to Lowell.

The Caledonian Record reports that the constraints on the grid have put a hold on some solar projects, including two in Jay and one in Derby.
