Eversource representatives will be in Concord on Tuesday to discuss the Northern Pass route selection, the Forward NH Plan, benefits to New Hampshire and the Tri-State Clean Energy RFP application.
The representatives will appear before the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee (SEC) as part of its ongoing review of Northern Pass, known as Technical Sessions. These informal hearings are an opportunity for the parties involved in the Northern Pass state review process to ask questions the project.
The project experts include:

Quinlan is the Eversource President of New Hampshire Operations and is responsible for ensuring the safe and reliable delivery of electricity to more than 500,000 Eversource customers in New Hampshire, as well as overseeing the construction, operation, and maintenance of Eversource’s New Hampshire electricity infrastructure.
Kenneth B. Bowes joined Northeast Utilities in 1984 and today serves as Eversource Vice President of Engineering. Mr. Bowes is responsible for engineering activities for Eversource’s electric transmission and distribution system. He manages the distributed generation, micro-grid, new technology, and R&D activities for the company, and executes the System Resiliency Program and Distributed Energy Resources projects.
