Correspondence to the EDCs regarding the status of the Northern Pass Project

On February 1, 2018, the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee (NHSEC) voted unanimously to deny the Northern Pass project a Certificate of Site and Facility. In order to fully assess the potential impacts of the NHSEC vote, the Department of Energy Resources (“DOER”) sent a letter on February 2, 2018 requesting that the Electric Distributions Companies (“EDCs”) send a communication to the Northern Pass Project seeking an update on the status of the project in light of this vote. Further, DOER requested that the EDCs meet with the DOER and the Independent Evaluator no later than February 9th to discuss the matter. The Independent Evaluator also received a copy of this letter.
