New Yorkers Get Their Energy From A Surprising Place: New Jersey
This post is sponsored by Siemens.
New York thrives on electricity. It takes a lot of energy to keep the lights on in the city that never sleeps.
How does all that power get to the greater New York metropolitan area? The old way of doing things was to cram large smoke-stacked power plants among all the skyscrapers. Now there's a new, more eco-friendly way for cities to get their power: via reliable, low-loss cables that run underground and underwater from converter stations miles away from where the power is needed.
New York gets much of its energy from two plants in Ridgefield, New Jersey, which are equipped with High-Voltage DC (HVDC) technology from Siemens. Named Neptune and Hudson, these projects are managed by PowerBridge LLC and deliver enough reliable power to supply more than 1.3 million households
Watch the video below to learn more about how Siemens and PowerBridge are keeping the lights on in New York with power generated miles away in the Garden State.
