Southold, Suffolk County

Project Description:

The proposed project is located within the Town of Southold (including the Village of Greenport), the Town of Shelter Island (including the hamlet of Shelter Island Heights) and within the land underneath the bottom of the Shelter Island Sound North. The Project involves the installation of a new 13kV underground feeder cable to reliably supply electric power to Shelter Island obviating the need to rely on temporary emergency generation that had been placed on Shelter Island during the summer following the loss of a 13kV submarine feeder crossing Shelter Island Sound North. Additionally, the project will support the growing energy needs of the Town of Shelter Island. The new cable will replace the primary feeder cable to Shelter Island that was damaged and failed following Hurricane Sandy in November 2012. The new feeder cable will be approximately 3.1 miles long, originating at the Southold Substation in the Town of Southold and terminating on Chase Avenue in the hamlet of Shelter Island Heights. The project route has three sections: Southold to Greenport (North Fork) Land Feeder Cable Route, Greenport to Shelter Island Horizontal Directional Drill (HDD) Crossing, and Shelter Island Land Feeder Cable Route.
