Governor Chris Sununu Statement on Department of Energy Record of Decision

Concord, NH - Today, following the news that the Department of Energy issued a Record of Decision and approved the Presidential permit for the proposed Northern Pass Transmission Line project, Governor Chris Sununu issued the following statement:

"Today, New Hampshire is one step closer to lowering energy rates across the Granite State. After years of careful review, the Department of Energy has approved the Presidential Permit for the Northern Pass Transmission Line project, which will deliver 1,100MW of clean, renewable energy to New Hampshire: a home-run for small businesses, rate-payers, and clean energy advocates. Shovel-ready projects like Northern Pass stand ready to deliver the clean, baseload electricity that Massachusetts should be actively pursuing in their Clean Energy RFP."
