As the project progresses, National Grid and Eversource will continue our ongoing commitment to keeping officials, residents, businesses up to date. Please note that the siting processes in Massachusetts and New Hampshire are separate and distinct. Below, we have laid out the basic steps of each state’s siting process.
National Grid and Eversource have begun petitioning the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities (DPU), Massachusetts Energy Facilities Siting Board (EFSB) and the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee (SEC) for project approvals. See the chart below for a high-level overview of the siting process. Public involvement is encouraged throughout each process.
