Con Ed Rainey Substation

Across the East River from Roosevelt Island, new clean energy


A report in the New York Post says the state awarded a contract for the Clean Path Project. A 174 mile line will carry clean energy from Delaware County into New York City.

The final destination is Con Ed’s Rainey Substation, just north of the Roosevelt Island Bridge. But you wouldn’t know it by the Post’s story. There, it’s described as “the Rainey Substation on Roosevelt Island in Queens.”

Out of towners sometime get that wrong, but what’s the local newspaper’s excuse? It can’t compete with the Times’s report on that Queensboro Bridge exit ramp to Roosevelt Island. But it’s worth noting.

With political flare for hyperbole, Governor Kathy Hochul claims the line will create 10,000, mostly construction jobs. The project’s aim is increasing the state’s reliance on renewable energy and combating climate change.
