Permitting: Article VII

Article VII

Article VII, ‘Siting of Major Utility Transmission Facilities,’ is the section of the New York State Public Service Law that requires a full review of the need for and environmental impact of the siting, design, construction, and operation of major transmission facilities in New York State.

Article VII establishes the forum in which community residents can participate with members of state and local agencies in the review process. The following is a chart showing the open and transparent process that allows for full public review and engagement. This means ongoing outreach, participation, and dialog at every step of the process.
