MANCHESTER, N.H. (January 3, 2018) – New Hampshire workers and businesses, including suppliers, subcontractors, and the services and hospitality industries, will have the opportunity next week in Concord to meet with the team leading the construction of Northern Pass at a second Job & Supplier Fair. Attendees can discuss the kinds of jobs, subcontractor opportunities, and supplies that are needed to complete Eversource’s 192-mile hydroelectric transmission line, and businesses can learn how to reach the many people who will be working on Northern Pass over the multi-year construction period. Northern Pass will create or generate 2,600 jobs at the peak of its construction.
“Northern Pass has long been committed to hiring New Hampshire workers first and these fairs are a way for us to follow through on that commitment,” said Eversource New Hampshire President Bill Quinlan. “We encourage everyone to attend and learn about the many opportunities available for local businesses and workers.”
