ABOUT necec

The New England Clean Energy Connect (NECEC) will deliver up to 1,200 megawatts of clean, reliable hydropower directly to Lewiston, Maine, making the project New England’s largest source of carbon-free electricity through 2063 and beyond.

Diversifying the region’s energy supply mix with dependable hydropower will buffer Maine consumers from seasonal energy price spikes. New England needs hydropower because it is reliable, cost-effective, and much better for our environment.
