New York State's Article 7 & Part 102

  • Our experience with Article VII projects has paved the way for LaBella to be able to develop Article 10 projects for renewable energy clients all over New York State.  Article VII and Part 102 can streamline the permitting process for a renewable energy facility requiring the installation of a  65kV transmission line over one mile or a 115 kV transmission line over a distance of 10 miles or greater.   
     

  • As renewable energy installation become more common in New York State the need for new transmission line and substation upgrades will increase. In 2019 Labella is currently involved in over 30 Article VII and Part 102 projectss
