Northern Pass Denied By Site Evaluation Committee For Second Time

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.
