July 19, 2019 (CONCORD, NH) – Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) released the following statement today after the New Hampshire Supreme Court upheld the state’s rejection of the Northern Pass project.

“Today’s Supreme Court decision is the right one for New Hampshire,” said Tom Irwin, Vice President and Director of CLF New Hampshire. “Eversource has been nothing but dismissive of community concerns throughout this process and that alone is enough to reject Northern Pass for good. This project has always been bad for the state and Eversource needs to move on.”

The state’s site evaluation committee unanimously denied the necessary approvals that would have allowed the project to move forward in February 2018.
