Shaheen Statement After Release of Revised Northern Pass Route Proposal

Washington, DC—Senator Shaheen made the following comments after Eversource Energy announced a revised route proposal for the Northern Pass Transmission Project:

“This announcement by Eversource underscores the need for the robust process that’s underway to review the Northern Pass project,” said Shaheen. “The determination of the public’s interest extends far beyond energy needs and any full review must examine the impact on the citizens of New Hampshire and to the region’s environment, property and tourism. I look forward to reviewing this latest proposal and I encourage Granite Staters to contribute during the Department of Energy’s comment period with their views and concerns.”
