Not in ME’s Backyard

Not in ME’s Backyard

The proposed transmission route for Maine’s wind-power project.

Recently, much of the Upper Valley has been astir with the news that a cooperative venture between Hydo Quebec and Northeast Utilities may bring a high-voltage power line through the region.

Known colloquially as the “Northern Pass,” the proposal seeks to satisfy increasing demands for sustainable electricity in New England by creating a north-south conduit for hydroelectrically generated energy. Advocates say that such a project would not only generate thousands of locally-sourced jobs, but would also help Connecticut and Massachusetts meet the renewable energy quotas established by recent state laws. Critics tend to focus on the adverse environmental impacts that the undertaking would have on the countryside and its potential to promote “run-away power development” throughout the region.
