CONCORD — Next week Massachusetts’ three major electric distributors and the Department of Environmental Resources will announce which proposals to produce 10 terawatt hours of clean renewable energy over the next 20 years will be selected to negotiate long-term contracts.
Northern Pass objected Tuesday to a motion filed by the town of Bethlehem seeking to re-open the record before state regulators to accept new evidence that a proposed hotel development could be jeopardized if the 192-mile high-voltage transmission line is built as planned.
MANCHESTER, N.H. – New Hampshire workers and businesses, including suppliers, subcontractors, and the services and hospitality industries, will have the opportunity on Wednesday, Jan. 10 in Concord to meet with the team leading the construction of Northern Pass at a second Job & Supplier Fair.
The town of Bethlehem wants the record on the Northern Pass high-voltage transmission project reopened after a hotel developer said it could jeopardize his plans to build a Homewood Suites by Hilton in Bethlehem, according to a motion filed Thursday.
Department of Transportation Assistant Commissioner William Cass says the department intends to hire a private firm at Northern Pass’s expense to monitor permit compliance and construction agreements along state roads because it does not have the staff.
“Today marks a major milestone, adding one more key authorization to those that have already been granted on both sides of the border, and moving us closer to proceed with the Québec–New Hampshire and Northern Pass Transmission projects,” said Éric Martel, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hydro-Québec.
