About Northern Pass
Northern Pass is a 192-mile, high-voltage transmission line straight through the heart of New Hampshire. The line would carry hydroelectricity from Canada to southern New England simply using New Hampshire as a huge extension cord to bring power to Massachusetts and Connecticut.

The upcoming election faces voters with a host of important issues they must weigh carefully before deciding whom to vote for. With passions high on a variety of issues, it is important for us not to forget about an issue that is important to so many here in the Granite State. I’m talking about the Northern Pass project.

The state Supreme Court will weigh in on Northern Pass. The court didn’t set a date for oral argument but on Friday issued a Dec. 11 deadline for the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee to file a copy of the case’s record. That committee last February unanimously rejected the proposed $1.6 billion hydroelectric transmission line.

Eversource recently appealed to New Hampshire’s Supreme Court, contesting the Site Evaluation Committee’s (SEC) denial of Northern Pass. This appeal was expected by those in the NH community rights movement because when corporations don’t get the answers they want, they challenge the decision-making system, with only required consideration for the wishes of people affected by a proposed project.
Opposition to Northern Pass among New Hampshire residents is at an all-time high, according to a new Granite State Poll. The poll by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center found that 47 percent of respondents opposed the proposed electrical transmission line, the highest level recorded since polling began on this question in 2011 and the fifth consecutive increase in opposition.
