New England Clean Energy Connect Public Information Forum
The Town of Fayette will hold a Public Information Forum on Tuesday, February 25th starting at 7PM at the Fayette Central School to inform and discuss the New England Clean Energy Connect (NECEC) project also known as the CMP Corridor.
The intended project proposed will build 145 miles of High Voltage Direct Currency (HVDC) transmission line in order to bring hydropower energy from Quebec to Massachusetts. This corridor will pass through Western & Southern Maine.
Although Fayette is not directly impacted by this construction, NECEC will go through the nearby towns of Jay, Livermore Falls, and Chesterville.
Given the number of conversations had among residents, the Fayette Board of Selectmen supported the idea of a public information event to inform Fayette citizens about the project.
Thorn Dickinson, the Vice President of Business Development at Avangrid will present as the corporation leading the project, as well as former State Senator Thomas Saviello of Wilton who represents the resolve to reject the NECEC Transmission project.
If you have any specific questions about the project that you would like to forward to Senator Saviello or Mr. Dickinson before the forum, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
