The Northern Pass project will have a significant and positive impact on New Hampshire’s economy; most notably in the job market.
We’ve posted a video featuring Joe Casey, Business Manager of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local No. 490 (Concord, NH), who describes the effects of the three year construction phase on the local workers that he partners with every day.
An updated economic study, in April, 2011, reported:
“…The … economic analysis estimates total job creation from the three-year construction project to peak at 1,330 to 1,680 local jobs in 2013 and 2014; with 900 to 1,135 local jobs being created or supported in 2015…”
The project is committed to hiring local labor first. More information on project jobs, and a means to add your name to a jobs mailing list, is available here.
