Northern Pass hosts open house in Concord
Susca’s home borders an existing Public Service of New Hampshire right-of-way, he said at Wednesday night’s open house hosted by the project’s owners at the Holiday Inn on Main Street.
“When I look out from my deck, I’m going to be looking right at a 125-foot tower,” Susca said.
The open house was the sixth hosted by Northern Pass to tout its project and answer questions about the proposed routes, which have changed several times since the hydroelectric project was first announced in 2010.
Susca said he came into the open house with an open mind. He wanted to know if the project was planning to remove any trees that would provide some buffer for the lines, and whether Northern Pass engineers would consider burying the lines.
“They’re not giving us what we want, which is to bury the lines,” he said. “But what they have done, it seems, is try to find a configuration that won’t make it necessary to remove the trees we have left. So that’s something. It’s not what we want, but it’s something.”
Skelton said she was asked to leave because she was being disruptive.
