Northern Pass Statement On Decision By NH Site Evaluation Committee To Deny Project’s Application

MANCHESTER, N.H.--()--The following is a statement from Northern Pass, a project of Eversource Energy and Hydro-Québec:

We are shocked and outraged by today’s SEC outcome. The process failed to comply with New Hampshire law and did not reflect the substantial evidence on the record. As a result, the most viable near-term solution to the region’s energy challenges, as well as $3 billion of NH job, tax, and other benefits, are now in jeopardy. Clearly, the SEC process is broken and this decision sends a chilling message to any energy project contemplating development in the Granite State. We will be seeking reconsideration of the SEC’s decision, as well as reviewing all options for moving this critical clean energy project forward.
