As the project progresses, National Grid will continue our ongoing commitment to keeping residents, officials and businesses up to date on our project progress and anticipated local impacts. Please note that the siting processes in Vermont and New Hampshire are separate and distinct. Below is a review of the basic steps in the federal and each state’s specific siting processes.
Public outreach is central to the development philosophy of the Granite State Power Link and will be undertaken from project development through operations. Since the project’s public launch in March 2017, GSPL has undertaken extensive outreach efforts targeting grassroots and grasstops stakeholders to provide wide-reaching education on the project and the development, permitting, and construction process. GSPL has and will continue to conduct: briefings; one-on-one meetings; presentations to Boards of Selectmen, state legislators, NGOs and interest groups; community public meetings; and, formal communication to all project landowners and abutters. GSPL is committed to open, transparent and regular communication to ensure public participation is embedded into all activities.
