No, To Northern Pass opposes the Northern Pass project in New Hampshire, a high-voltage electric transmission line that will impact almost 95,000 acres throughout the state. As a new voice for opponents of this project, we share the goals and views of many pre-existing organizations in the North Country, Granite State and beyond; that the Northern Pass project will have negative impacts and is a bad deal for New Hampshire’s residents.

View a list of project opponents to date below, or sign up for email updates using the box to your right.

This coalition is broad-based and is actively recruiting statewide sponsors and local partners to organize groups, associations, and citizens. Our mission is to examine the facts. The Northern Pass project is an unnecessary gamble New Hampshire can’t afford – we have a personal responsibility to act now, raise awareness, and make smart choices to protect New Hampshire’s future.

U.S. Forest Service recommends permit to bury Northern Pass lines in White Mountains

Driving to Labrador up the frontier road, these transmission corridors carrying hydro power run from Manic 5 south.  They are gigantic towers and turn what would be one of the most stunningly scenic roads in Quebec into an industrial zone.  I don't blame any of those groups or individuals for opposing Northern Pass.  I do think it's quite hypocritical for these transmission lines from Canada to be so strongly opposed by environmental groups, while transmission lines being built to serve the wind industry and send expensive and intermittent power hundreds of miles to southern New England are lauded as being "green".

Land of Many Uses, or in the case of Northern Pass, many abuses

As you can see per the map it will traverse the White Mountains, National Park. Approximately parallel to I-93 for a portion of the way. 

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine."

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
