Fiscal Detail and Notes
This resolve directs the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) to amend a previously issued “Order Granting Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity and Approving Stipulation” entered by the PUC on May 3, 2019 for the New England Clean Energy Connect transmission project. Requiring the amended order to find that the construction and operation of the transmission project are not in the public interest and that there is not a public need for it, and requiring denial of a certificate of public convenience and necessity for the project, may extend or reopen the deliberative process of the PUC related to the project. Any additional costs to the PUC as a result of this initiative are within the scope of activities budgeted by the PUC and are not anticipated to require supplemental appropriations or allocations.
