Supreme Court To Hear Northern Pass Appeal
On Friday October 12, the New Hampshire Supreme Court said that it would consider Eversource’s appeal of the March 2018 decision by the Site Evaluation Committee (SEC) to deny a Certificate of Site and Facility for the controversial Northern Pass transmission line project.
“At the Forest Society we’ve been working with our attorneys in expectation that the Supreme Court would take up Northern Pass’s appeal. We think the SEC decision to deny a permit was the right one made for the right reasons—Northern Pass failed to meet the burden of proof. We’ll be working to make sure the Court has a full understanding of the issues that led to the SEC decision.”
The schedule for filings and oral arguments before the Court has not yet been set. The SEC has until Dec. 11 to produce the record of the proceedings, which were voluminous.
