rejects Northern Pass transmission
●The New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee (SEC) yesterday unanimously rejected the Northern Pass transmission project, throwing the project's future into doubt.
●Owned by Eversource Energy, the 192-mile transmission line would move power from Hydro-Quebec dams in Canada to a substation in Deerfield, N.H. Just last week, Massachusetts selected the project to help achieve the state's clean energy goals.
●Once a final report is issued, project developers can appeal the decision and then potentially take the case to the state's Supreme Court. Northern Pass officials previously said an appeal was possible if the project was rejected; local media reports the company is "shocked and outraged" by the SEC's decision.
