Extreme weather patterns such as strong winds, extreme precipitation, severe droughts and unseasonably warm or cold temperatures have impacted communities in recent years. With extreme weather comes heightened risks of tornadoes, ice storms and forest fires that have led to property damage, disruption of power transmission and loss of power in various regions of the country. The SOO Green HVDC Link with its underground installation of transmission lines will avoid these risks and contribute to a stable, reliable and resilient grid that can withstand extreme weather patterns.
