Demolition Underway for Brooklyn Clean Energy Hub in Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn

Demolition is underway on the Hudson Avenue Generating Station, the site of Con Edison’s Brooklyn Clean Energy Hub in Vinegar Hill. Dubbed “The Hub,” the transmission substation will be capable of powering around 750,000 homes with up to 1,500 megawatts of electricity from offshore wind power. ConEdison designed the new structure to allow for future expandability, with a maximum processing capacity of 6,000 megawatts. The site is bound by Marshall Street to the south, Hudson Avenue to the east, and Gold Street and the Con Edison Farragut Station to the west. A groundbreaking ceremony was held last September and construction is expected to begin around the middle of this year.
