New Hampshire’s congressional delegation has asked the federal Department of Energy to do a more rigorous review of a controversial proposal to build a 187-mile electric transmission line through northern New Hampshire. In a letter to Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, the senators and representatives cite a change in the route of the proposed Northern Pass project and concerns they have heard from constituents. The delegation also wants to know if a federal environmental review can continue before the project’s backers demonstrate that they can legally pursue construction on the new route. The $1.4 billion project would transmit 1,200 megawatts of Canadian hydroelectric power from Hydro-Quebec into New England, enough to serve 1.2 million homes.
