Land Use and Access

Typically, it is necessary to obtain specific land rights to construct, operate, and maintain a transmission line. This may be accomplished by purchasing land or obtaining an easement for the necessary right-of-way to construct, operate, and maintain the transmission line. For the most part, National Grid currently owns the rights-of-way/existing corridor that will be used for this project. NYES designed the proposed transmission lines to be constructed entirely within the existing rights-of-way.
