The article focuses on the effort of the New York Power Authority to strengthen the in-state transmission system in New York given the energy and environmental goals of Governor David A. Paterson. The authority is looking at several transmission projects that would explore opportunities for new connections to Canada and states to the south. But, a report from North American Electric Reliability Corp. (NERC) noted that turning renewable energy sources could threaten the reliability of the grid.
