Northern Pass

State hearings on the Northern Pass project have been going on for two and a half months now, but Concord hasn’t heard anything to change its opinion that the power lines should be buried as they travel through the city.

Lawmakers hit the brakes on a bill that could give Eversource Energy another chance to seek regulatory approval on its plan to buy power off the Northern Pass.

permit from President Donald Trump.


Hundreds of people came from across the state Sunday to express their opposition to the Northern Pass power transmission project.
