Who has the ultimate say over Northern Pass?

CONCORD, NH, Dec. 20, 2016—A consortium of 18 New Hampshire towns has asserted that only a local community has the legal right to authorize the use of local roads for a project like Northern Pass.

Whereas the proposed largely-overhead Northern Pass transmission line faces lawsuits, unprecedented opposition in its quest to find a buildable route and necessary permits, an underground alternative in Vermont is moving ahead.

Northern Pass is seeking to quash testimony from property owners who have the most to lose should the proposed transmission line project be permitted by the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee (SEC).

This document was submitted to the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee as pre-filed testimony as part of the docket for the proposed Northern Pass Transmission line. 

TDI New England (“TDI-NE”) announced today the United States Department of Energy (DOE) has issued a Presidential Permit for the New England Clean Power Link, a 1,000 MW buried electric transmission line that will connect New England with Eastern Canada.
