Consultant questions whether Bay State will accept power project without approvals
CONCORD — A Massachusetts energy consultant Tuesday questioned whether the Bay State, in search of new sources of clean power, would choose proposed transmission projects, such as Northern Pass or a National Grid alternative, that don’t have all the necessary approvals.
“I would expect that the evaluators here are very adverse to putting themselves in a position of putting all their eggs into one basket if it’s a basket where there’s a risk of it still falling apart,” said Robert Grace, managing director and president of Sustainable Energy Advantage in Framingham, Mass.
Grace addressed the New Hampshire Energy Summit at the Holiday Inn, detailing the results of a solicitation from Massachusetts Clean Energy that garnered 46 total bids last summer. Evaluators could choose among a buffet of wind, solar and hydropower options, he said. Officials there are scheduled to select bids for negotiations by Jan. 25.

That's why CMP is racing to get their permit for the NECEC transmission corridor that will carry hydro and wind from Quebec.
