Trees Not Towers: Why the Northern Pass proposal is Bad for New Hampshire

President/Forester Jane Difley's op-ed about why the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests has concluded that the proposal from Hydro-Quebec and Northeast Utilities provides little or no benefit for the people of New Hampshire while causing unecessary harm can be read here. If you'd like to read Gary Long's defense of the tradeoffs involved in the proposal (Long is President/COO of PSNH, a subsidiary of Northeast Utilities), you can do so here. It's also interesting to read the public comments that follow each op-ed--clearly Mr. Long is not yet making a convincing case.

We can all get Guaranteed lower electric rates in NH. The 1st ever NH based company to offer the power of choice for electricity supply. is a division of Freedom Logistics based in Manchester, NH. -603-513-1988 - Frank
