Central Maine Power Company (CMP) has filed applications with the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (MDEP) for construction of the New England Clean Energy Connect (NECEC), an electric transmission line from the Maine border with Quebec in Beattie Township to a new converter station in Lewiston. Approximately 73% of a 147-mile transmission line will be built within CMP’s existing transmission corridor. The remainder of the line will be built in an undeveloped corridor owned or controlled by CMP in western Somerset and Franklin counties. The NECEC will be capable of delivering up to 1,200 megawatts of clean, renewable energy to the New England power grid.
The proposed transmission line will traverse several townships and plantations within the LUPC’s jurisdiction (listed below). As required by Maine law, CMP filed notice of intent to develop with the Commission. The Commission must make a determination whether the project is an allowed use within the subdistricts for which it is proposed, and whether the project meets any land use standard established by the Commission that is not considered in the MDEP’s review. The MDEP will use this certification in their permitting process pursuant to the Site Location of Development Law.
Appleton Twp., Bald Mountain Twp., Beattie Twp., Bradstreet Twp., Concord Twp., Hobbstown Twp., Johnson Mountain Twp., Lowelltown Twp., Merrill Strip Twp., Moxie Gore, Parlin Pond Twp., Skinner Twp., The Forks Plt., T5 R7 BKP WKR, and West Forks Plt.
