Forward NH Plan


Northern Pass benefits go far beyond the clean energy, tax revenue, and construction jobs the project will bring New Hampshire. Northern Pass has also announced an innovative plan, called the Forward NH Plan, which will provide a wide range of economic, infrastructure, and tax benefits for New Hampshire. These benefits include providing $7.5 million to the North Country Job Creation Fund to develop and retain jobs in the North Country, $3 million to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to establish the Partners for NH’s Fish and Wildlife grant program, and $200 million to establish the Forward NH Fund to support clean energy innovations, economic development, community investment, and tourism.

These direct benefits, combined with a route that reduces the potential impact on scenic landscapes, makes Northern Pass a positive solution to our energy needs.
