Time to Move on From Northern Pass

February 1 is the one-year anniversary of the unanimous decision by the Site Evaluation Committee to deny a certificate to Northern Pass.

Despite the decision, Eversource and supporters of Northern Pass have not given up. In the year since the decision:

  • Governor Sununu has tried to appoint two persons predisposed to Northern Pass to the SEC.

  • The NH Supreme Court is considering an appeal of the SEC decision.

  • Eversource has stated is remains fully committed to seeing Northern Pass completed.

  • Eversource is working to reform the SEC process to make it easier for projects like Northern Pass to get approved.

One year later, enough is enough. It’s time to move on. Please write a letter to the editor of your local paper and express your opinion that it’s time to move on from Northern Pass. Letters-to-the-editor are one of the most read sections of a newspaper, so writing a letter to your local paper is an effective way to get your message out.

Letter-Writing Tips

Use the talking points below to craft your own Letter-to-the-Editor in your own words. We’ve also included a list of New Hampshire newspapers you can use to find where to submit your letter. Keep your letter brief (most require 200 words or less), to the point and polite. Make your letter personal if you can. Think about why you first decided to oppose Northern Pass. Try to capture that feeling in your letter. If you have a personal story to tell, include it. Also include your contact information - many papers will only print a letter if they can confirm the writer’s identity, so include your name, address and phone number. When finished with your LTE you can send a message to Gov. Sununu here.

Talking Points

  • One year after the unanimous decision by the SEC to reject Northern Pass it’s time to move on.

  • It’s time for backers of Northern Pass to accept that No means No.

  • The SEC process was complete, methodical and thorough. Ninety-five percent of public comments submitted to the SEC were opposed to the project.

  • A year after the SEC rejected Northern Pass nothing has changed that would make the project any less disastrous for New Hampshire.

  • The facts show Northern Pass will not promote lasting economic growth.

  • Northern Pass will barely lower energy costs.

  • Northern Pass won’t ‘benefit the environment’ – it will devastate it.

  • Northern Pass is designed to use New Hampshire as an extension cord to deliver energy to Massachusetts, causing enormous and permanent harm to our state with no real or lasting benefits.

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.
