CONCORD, NH – The Northern Pass has been denied for a second time. Yesterday the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee denied an appeal by Eversource for the $1.6 billion transmission line project.

The committee originally rejected the proposal in February. During the meeting members agreed there was no reason to revisit the Northern Pass application.

WMUR-TV reported that after facing criticism saying that the deliberations were incomplete committee member  Chris Way said, Referring to the application,  “There really wasn’t much information..There seemed to be a lot of gaps.”

Northern Pass officials said they may take their case to the supreme court. Both Environmental groups and Northern Pass officials say they like their chances at the Supreme Court.

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The state Supreme Court has reversed a ruling by regulators that denied New Hampshire’s largest utility its proposal to use money from electricity rates to help pay for a natural gas pipeline.

The Concord Monitor reports the court on Tuesday struck down a 2016 Public Utilities Commission decision that rejected Eversource’s request to use electric rates to pay for increasing capacity on the Algonquin pipeline. The case was sent back to the PUC.

Eversource spokesman Martin Murray said in light of the ruling, it will revisit the PUC’s decision to deny a power purchase agreement with Hydro Quebec for the Northern Pass project. He said that denial “was based on the same flawed legal analysis that the Supreme Court today overturned.”

Separately, the state Site Evaluation Committee, which rejected Northern Pass, is scheduled to discuss Eversource’s appeal Thursday.
