The Waltham, VT selectboard Tuesday night unanimously approved a resolution supporting the Vermont Green Line and allowing the project to be located along a specified route on Route 7 within the town. Project developers Anbaric Transmission and National Grid have proposed to construct the 60-mile cable project, which would bring 400 megawatts of onshore wind and hydropower from northern New York and Canada to New England. The project will originate in Beekmantown, New York; cross under Lake Champlain, and terminate in New Haven, VT. Both the land and lake portions of the project will be completely buried.
