LITTLETON, N.H. —A project that will bring wind power to New England was announced on Tuesday.
National Grid announced a $20 million partnership with the Northern Community Investment Corporation over 40 years for economic development in route towns.
The Granite State Power Link project will bring power from Quebec through Vermont and New Hampshire to states in New England.
The money will support economic development in the communities through which the transmissions lines pass.
“Things like job creation and retention, local infrastructure improvements and other needs in the North Country and other parts of New Hampshire,” said Joe Rossignoli, director of U.S. business development for National Grid.
The transmission line in New Hampshire will stretch from Monroe to Londonderry.
Ninety-seven percent of the line will follow already-established corridors.
