Canterbury, NH is located along the preliminary preferred route for The Northern Pass. As currently proposed, the transmission line in Canterbury will be:
- Constructed in an existing transmission right of way where two 115 kV transmission lines exist today
- 5.93 miles long
- 345 kV AC (alternating current)
These visual simulations show what The Northern Pass transmission line will look like in Canterbury from locations where people would potentially see it from. These visual simulations were produced by LandWorks, a landscape architecture and planning firm out of Middlebury, VT, using sophisticated and industry-accepted software and software methodologies.
The design of the Northern Pass project continues to be refined as new engineering data is gathered. Northern Pass has determined that the project can be built within the existing Right-of-Way with no requirements for expansion. We expect our final proposed structure heights to be announced in the near future.
Tax Benefits (estimated)
Based on use of the preliminary preferred route, and 2009 tax data, The Northern Pass project will invest approximately $40.5 million in Canterbury, providing an estimated $555,000 annually in local property tax payments.
