Hydro Québec’s Northern Pass Project

February 2, 2018

CBC – Regulators in the state of New Hampshire have rejected a major electricity project being piloted by Quebec’s hydro utility and its American partner, Eversource. Members of New Hampshire’s Site Evaluation Committee unanimously denied an application for the Northern Pass project today. On July 19, 2019 the New Hampshire Supreme Court upheld the project’s rejection last year by the state Site Evaluation Committee, followed one week later by the official withdrawal of Eversource from the project.
