“Making investments like this in the region’s infrastructure ensures that homes and businesses receive the safe, reliable power needed for today and for the future,” said David Boguslawski, Northeast Utilities' Vice President of Transmission Strategy & Operations. “This project will also bring critically-needed economic benefits to the towns along the route by creating jobs during construction and generating new property tax revenue for years to come.”
Today’s technology-driven society relies more than ever on a strong electric transmission grid, which requires periodic maintenance and improvement. In addition to improving reliability of the electric grid, this project will enhance customer access to cleaner, competitively priced power.
Construction is scheduled to begin on Thursday, August 15, and the new line is expected to go into service in 2014. This work will not interrupt service to homes or businesses.
