NH consumer advocate says Northern Pass price info should be revealed

The Associated Press

CONCORD — The state consumer advocate says people should be able to see the price Eversource Energy plans to pay for power off the proposed Northern Pass transmission lines.

Eversource seeks to run a 192-mile transmission line from Pittsburg to Deerfield, carrying enough HydroQuebec power to southern New England markets to power about a million homes.

Their power purchase agreement was filed with the state Public Utilities Commission for final approval last month. Cost information was blacked out.

The Concord Monitor reports Donald Kreis, the state consumer advocate, says customers should be able to review it.

Eversource says that could hurt its ability to attract negotiating partners.
