After 70 days of hearings and reviewing thousands of public comments and exhibits, the Site Evaluation Committee (SEC) agreed with you that Northern Pass is wrong for New Hampshire. The SEC voted 7-0 to deny Northern Pass a site certificate. Now the company wants Gov. Sununu to inappropriately interfere with this independent agency’s decision and “fix” it for them. Tell Gov. Sununu you oppose Northern Pass and that he should respect the SEC’s unanimous decision. It’s time to move on from Northern Pass.
