General info: Sandy pond is currently the worlds only Multi-terminal High Voltage Direct Current link. The 450kV DC line which goes over 900 miles up to the St James Bay area can carry up to 2000MW of Hydro generated electricity down into the New England area. The converter station which is capable of supplying around 10% of the area's electrical needs has been in operation for over 20 years.
