Clean Energy Connect Project Will Benefit Mainers While Cutting Carbon Pollution

Central Maine Power’s Clean Energy Connect project will build a 145-mile transmission line through Maine to connect more than 1,000 megawatts of Canadian hydropower to New England’s electrical grid. By bringing more clean energy to the region, the project will reduce our reliance on dangerous, expensive fracked gas and significantly cut climate-damaging emissions. CLF, working… Continue reading Clean Energy Connect Project Will Benefit Mainers While Cutting Carbon Pollution

Northern Pass Tries (and Fails) to Remain Relevant in Changing Energy Landscape

The Northern Pass transmission project proposes to bring electricity generated from Canadian dams to southern New England. But it will come at a tremendous cost to New Hampshire through the damage it would do to the environment and communities along its 192-mile path. Granite Staters have opposed the project since it was first rolled out… Continue reading Northern Pass Tries (and Fails) to Remain Relevant in Changing Energy Landscape

New England’s Big Pipeline Myth

For three years now, Big Gas has been spinning tall tales aimed at scaring you and me – and especially our local politicans – into locking in our addiction to dirty, polluting natural gas for decades to come. But their hype ignores the facts and the very real progress made over the past few years to avoid price spikes, keep the lights on, and tamp down our emissions of climate-damaging pollution.
