BCM Helps to Defeat the Northern Pass Project

Nicole Manteau Feb. 17, 2018

The attorneys of BCM Environmental & Land Law, PLLC, representing the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, were successful in defeating the Northern Pass project at the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee.

The proposed project was seeking approval to construct a 192-mile transmission line from the Canadian border at the edge of the Great North Woods into the heart of the Merrimack Valley, which would have destroyed some of New Hampshire’s most treasured resources.  Almost three years since the filing of the petition, and after dozens of technical sessions and 70 days of hearings, the NH SEC unanimously voted 7-0 to deny a certificate of site and facility for the proposed project.
