BOSTON -- The Baker administration's decision to award multi-billion-dollar clean power contracts to Eversource Energy and Hydro-Quebec has revealed areas of common cause between fossil fuel interests and renewable energy advocates in Massachusetts and New England.
Northern Pass Transmission, a partnership between the two corporations, was selected as the exclusive winner of a competition to power a million Bay State homes for up to 20 years, Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources Commissioner Judith Judson announced on Thursday.
The plans for a 1,092-megawatt, 192-mile power line through New Hampshire -- paired with power from the Canadian hydro giant -- motored past 45 other applicants in the Massachusetts Clean Energy RFP, which called for diverse proposals to serve 9.45 annual terrawatts of low-carbon electricity to the Bay State.
