The Northern Pass Debate Spreads
Almost since it was first unveiled a year ago, the Northern Pass , a $1.1 billion hydroelectric project that would transmit power from Canada to central NH then on to the new England grid, has provoked sharp debate especially in the north country, where some forests would have to be cut for transmission lines. But now the debate is spreading to Central New Hampshire. We get the latest from two reporters who have been covering the communities where the discussion had been the loudest.
Edith Tucker: reporter for the Coos County Democrat
Annmarie Timmons: reporter for the Concord Monitor
