Northern Pass application 'incomplete'
In their joint comments, the Conservation Law Foundation, Appalachian Mountain Club and the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests say the amended application fails to offer a single alternative to the project; fails to provide required information on its environmental impacts; and is full of unsubstantiated assertions and improper legal arguments.
"Northern Pass makes a series of claims of likely impacts from the project for which it either does not provide substantiation for, or relies upon admittedly out-dated information," according to the NEPGA brief. "In particular, Northern Pass misrepresents the likely impact of the reduction in wholesale power prices, CO2 emissions and the region's use of natural gas."
