MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - A proposal to lay a 1,000-megawatt power line from the Canadian border down Lake Champlain and then across Vermont to Ludlow is taking another big step forward.

Developer TDI New England said Monday it had received its permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the 154-mile project that is designed to carry renewable electricity from Canada to southern New England. The project is still awaiting a presidential permit. It has already won approval from the state of Vermont.

There are a number of projects, including TDI New England, that are being proposed to deliver Canadian power to Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

TDI New England hopes to begin construction next year and be transmitting power by 2019.
