As several power plants in New England are planning to retire in the next few years, states are facing pressure to move toward more environmentally friendly power sources. As a result, the Northern Pass Project and other energy infrastructure developments are for looking to Canada, renewable energy, and wind.

The New Hampshire House gets ready to vote on it's version of the state budget, but some conservatives say the Republican-crafted budget is too rich.  New Hampshire's two U.S. senators say they'll vote against Neil Gorsuch, President Trump's Supreme Court pick.  A new energy project coming from Canada and an adverse decision by regulators thickens the plot when it comes to the Northern Pass project.

Utility company National Grid says it wants to build a new transmission line that would bring 1,200 megawatts of renewable power from Canada into New England. The major new project would take a different route than the controversial Northern Pass proposal put forward by Eversource.

Liberty Utilities Company completed its $250 million acquisition of National Grid’s gas and electric businesses in New Hampshire today.

Liberty Utilities now services National Grid’s 87,000 natural gas and 43,000 electric customers across the state. 

Ian Robertson, chief executive officer of Liberty Utilities’ parent company, Algonquin Power and Utilities Corp. of Ontario, says the deal was 18 months in the making.

Robertson says the transition will be seamless, and National Grid customers can expect a more localized approach to business.
