For much of the year officials at Northeast Utilities have been saying they would have the new route for Northern Pass submitted to the US Department of Energy by the end of the year.
But the New Year is here and while nothing has been posted with the DOE Northern Pass says it has a new route.
NHPR’s Chris Jensen reports.
In a conference call with analysts early in October Northeast Utilities official Lee Olivier said the company was “still on track” to file a new route with the Department of Energy by the end of the year.
Sen. Kelly Ayotte says she's optimistic that a deal can be reached to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff at the end of the year. Ayotte held a town meeting in Pittsburg Friday and the major topic was the economy.
NHPR’s Chris Jensen was there.
Talking to about 150 people in the tiny Northern town, Kelly Ayotte said the Democrats and the Republicans got the country into the debt crisis together.
“It is going to take two parties to get us out of it. We have divided government in Washington and we've got a lot of challenges.”
