Welcome to the Lake Erie CleanPower Connector
Job Creation. Clean Energy. Low-Environmental Impact.
These are the hallmarks of the Lake Erie CleanPower Connector (LECPC). This innovative project utilizing proven technology will be one of the largest privately-funded investments in Ontario and Pennsylvania history. The Lake Erie CleanPower Connector will create 300 jobs during a three-year construction period and will support the local tax base in both regions.
LECPC is a project being developed by Lake Erie Power Corp (LEPC). LEPC’s Values and Principles are at the core of everything we do.
LECPC’s focus is on increasing the supply of clean and renewable energy in North America using safe and reliable high-voltage direct current (HVDC) technology between Ontario, Canada and Pennsylvania, U.S.A where it will be connected to the PJM network (Regional Transmission Organization comprised of thirteen states including Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia). The line will have minimal environmental impact during and after installation and have low visual impact due to underwater cable route.
This new energy transmission project is financed by the private sector, and it will provide energy security, reduce energy costs for the consumer, create hundreds of jobs, and add millions of dollars to the local economy.
