Public meetings start for Granite State Power Link, a Northern Pass-like proposal

Granite State Power Link is a plan to carry 1,200 megawatts of wind and probably hydroelectric power from Quebec into Massachusetts. Despite the New Hampshire-centric name, a third of the line would run through Vermont. It is similar to Northern Pass, which seeks to carry 1,000 megawatts of Quebec hydropower through New Hampshire into New England’s grid, but the two plans have significant differences.

Construction of wind energy in remote areas doesn’t make sense

I write to express my opposition to Northern Pass and comment on wind power in New Hampshire. I plan to speak this week in Concord at the hearing open to all to register their feeling. It’s a project that is not needed for electric grid reliability but does cut a swath through New Hampshire’s most scenic landscapes, that will degrade natural, cultural, and recreation resources of, regional, state and national significance. I am opposed to it and were I a . . .

State committee upholds Antrim Wind approval

Proponents of a nine-turbine wind project in Antrim are cheering after a state committee denied three separate motions requesting it to reconsider its 2016 project approval. The state’s attorney general, residents who oppose the project, and meteorological intervenors all filed appeals against the approval of Antrim Wind Energy, which was made in December. Each of the appeals pointed to dozens of reasons why the project should not move forward, the most notable being that the committee broke its own rules . . .

Antrim Wind project blown off course

ANTRIM – A controversial wind turbine project is again on hold after opponents filed motions asking a state committee to rehear and reconsider its approval of the facility last year. The main argument in the three motions, each filed during the past month and a half, is that the N.H. Site Evaluation Committee broke its own rules to approve the nine-turbine installation. The groups behind the motions include property owners with land abutting and not abutting the project, the Stoddard Conservation . . .
