CMP Transmission Meeting in Bingham on Thur. 9/7/17 at 5:00 PM - (Attendance Encouraged)
Protect Maine’s UTs
The following information has been passed on to me with a request that it be posted:
On Thursday, 9/7/17 at 5 pm at Valley High School in Bingham, CMP is holding a public information meeting on their proposed MCPC/NECEC transmission corridor that would run from the Canadian border in Beattie Township and on to the Johnson Mountain substation along route 201. CMP has not been forthcoming on the intended use of the 345kv line – stating it’s only for Canadian hydro, but Mass bids say otherwise. The Bingham meeting will be an opportunity to put them on the spot and get more details. There are 5 wind projects being proposed in Somerset County affecting the Moosehead region that will have to use the line to ship their power to Mass. The proposed Maine Clean Power Connection (MCPC)/New England Clean Energy Connection (NECEC) represent the northwest portion of CMP’s proposed 145 mile transmission running from the Canadian utility interconnection in Beattie Township then south thru Moscow, Pittsfield and connecting to the southern transmission line to Massachusetts in Westbrook. The proposed expansion is included in a variety of CMP bids for lucrative renewable energy contracts in Massachusetts. If selected , the transmission expansion would open the Moosehead Region and surrounding communities to an onslaught of industrial wind development posing a direct threat to their critical tourism economies.
