Eversource, National Grid Host Local Open Houses for Merrimack Valley Reliability Project

Companies say regional line is needed "to bolster existing transmission system."

By 

National Grid and Eversource will host a series of open houses and public information sessions on the Merrimack Valley Reliability Project, a proposed new overhead transmission line between Londonderry and Tewksbury, MA, according to a press release.

Approximately 18 miles of the new lines will pass through Londonderry, Hudson, Windham, and Pelham in New Hampshire within existing utility rights-of-way.

The proposed transmission improvement will strengthen the electric system to better serve homes and businesses in southern New Hampshire and northeastern Massachusetts. As part of the approval process, Eversource and National Grid will file an application with the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee (SEC) to construct and operate the proposed transmission line.

The Open Houses will allow area residents to meet with and talk to engineers and other experts on various aspects of the project and to learn more about it. The Public Information Sessions are required by the SEC permitting process and provide an opportunity for members of the public to register questions or comments on the project with the SEC.
