"New England Clean Energy Connect appears to be an excellent proposal. It utilizes existing commercial forest land that is available for expanding business opportunities. It also follows an existing transmission corridor, which currently runs through Farmington. The use of this ROW for another major project is the right way to develop the grid, rather than forging new paths over environmentally sensitive or highly populated areas."
