Earlier this year, Roger Smith, co-director of Clean Water Action, accused the state of drafting the hydropower portion of the bill to benefit Northeast Utilities, which could reap financial rewards if the Northern Pass transmission line from Canada down through New Hampshire and Vermont is ever built. “This section of the bill strikes us as a narrowly tailored giveaway to Northeast Utilities to support their controversial partnership with Hydro-Quebec,” Smith said in March. “It’s an open door to let hydropower flood Connecticut.”
