Mr. Ron Bolt, Town of Littleton Selectman, explained to the BOC that he had been approached with information about the Northern Pass. The town received a map of the Northern Pass transmission line project mapping the preferred and alternate routes.
Mr. Bolt did not expect an immediate response was just looking for feedback. Commissioner Moore stated Rusty Bulis came to him asking what LWL’s volume was and possibly LWL could benefit from lower prices, but had nothing to do with the location of the lines. This was the only comment brought to Commissioner Moore’s attention. Commissioner Ross stated he felt this would serve no purpose to the town directly and that most of the market would be in the southern part of the state. Commissioner Moore asked if they have obtained all the right-of-ways, which Mr. Bolt responded they had not. Mr. Bolt stated this may not happen and that the town needs further clarification.
