EIS-0463: Draft Environmental Impact Statement

You are here

Northern Pass Transmission Line Project, New Hampshire

DOE issued a Draft EIS that evaluates the potential environmental impacts of a proposal by Northern Pass Transmission, LLC (Northern Pass) to construct, operate, maintain, and connect a high voltage direct current electric transmission line that would cross the U.S./Canada border in northern New Hampshire. DOE issued the Draft EIS in July 2015. Northern Pass subsequently amended its application, principally to increase the amount of the transmission line that would be buried. DOE then issued a Supplement to the Draft EIS in November 2015 that analyzes potential environmental impacts associated with the route proposed in the amended application.
