Northern Pass can operate as utility in NH once project approved

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — The New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission has approved an agreement to allow Northern Pass to operate as a public utility, contingent on its proposed power project getting approval for the necessary state and federal permits.

The agreement also says that Northern Pass must contribute $20 million over a 10-year period to be allocated by the commission to energy efficiency programs and clean energy programs.

The commission, in its approval Friday, denied an objection from the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests based on questions about property rights, eminent domain and transaction rules.

The project 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.
