CONCORD — The Mass. Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs will “monitor and evaluate” the Site Evaluation Committee’s “shocking” decision Thursday to deny Northern Pass’s application to build a controversial 192-mile transmission line from Pittsburg to Deerfield.
Concord, NH--The New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee charged with deciding the fate of the proposed Northern Pass transmission line project voted unanimously today to deny a Certificate of Site and Facility. The subcommittee hearing the case subsequently adjourned.
CONCORD — Site Evaluation Committee members challenged the credibility of a number of Northern Pass experts on Wednesday during the second day of deliberations on the proposed $1.6 billion transmission project.
While Site Evaluation Committee members are in general agreement that Eversource has the financial, technical and managerial capability to construct and operate the 192-mile Northern Pass transmission project, they believe loose ends and gaps need to addressed.
