NORTHERN IMPASSE? POWER PROJECT HANGING ON N.H. DECISION

By Colin A. Young
STATE HOUSE NEWS SERVICE

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, MARCH 12, 2018.....After refusing to certify the project once, a New Hampshire regulatory board opted Monday to pause all action on the 192-mile Northern Pass electricity transmission project, a delay that could mean Massachusetts will have to get clean energy via a different project.

New Hampshire Public Radio reported that the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee (SEC) voted Monday to put on hold its Feb. 1 decision to deny a necessary certificate for the Northern Pass project -- a ruling made orally and not in writing -- until the committee's official written decision is published later this month.

Northern Pass was the first choice of Massachusetts energy officials and utility executives for a major hydropower procurement, but the Baker administration has made plans to switch to an alternative project in Maine if the initial rejection decision of the NH SEC is not reversed by March 27.
