Letter: We don’t need ‘none of the above’ energy policy
I was happy to hear that Northern Pass is holding open houses, and I plan on attending. This is a good step toward engaging the public and earning support.
Northern Pass is needed from an energy perspective and from an employment perspective. We need projects like Northern Pass to put people back to work and create jobs. Too many people want a “none of the above” energy policy and oppose every new project that creates jobs and produces clean power.
Whether the Northern Pass gets approved will be determined through open debate – and I look forward to that debate. But at a time when we need good jobs and a long-term energy solution, I really hope that we build Northern Pass and get New Hampshire back to work.
