Introduction: Massachusetts/Hydro Quebec Power Line

Massachusetts is purchasing power from Hydro Quebec to help meet its goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 80% lower than 1990 levels.  The proposed CMP New England Clean Energy Connect line through Maine runs primarily through existing corridor but crosses the Applachian Trail and Kennebec River Gorge.  A related secondary line of the main line through Auburn runs through Whitefield along the existing power line corridor.
