This was on my mind today when I read this NYTimes green blog post noting the difficulty in getting new, significant, renewable energy projects up and running.
Given the economic challenges around the world, projects are being stalled or cancelled due to financial worries.
The Northern Pass doesn’t require a subsidy, like wind projects, for example. It is participant funded, meaning we customers won’t be charged for the infrastructure needed to connect the source of the power to our regional marketplace.
We don’t have many opportunities to reduce carbon emissions at the rate that The Northern Pass offers.
Let’s take advantage!
