National Grid met with the Select Board

LITTLETON — Just five days after the project went public, representatives from National Grid met with the Select Board on Monday to present the proposed Twin States Clean Energy Link, a hydroelectric transmission line that would extend from Canaan in Vermont to Londonderry in New Hampshire. They said that the benefits to Littleton would be about $1 million in new tax property revenue from the 17 miles of line that would be buried along Route 135. The goal is to communicate “early and often,” said Kaytlynn Monroe, a member of the outreach team. Planned is a 211-mile, 1,200-megawatt line, all underground in the Northeast Kingdom and North Country, that would import existing Canadian hydro-power into the entire New England power grid.
