3 Northeast Utilities Transmission System Facts At A Glance* Overhead Transmission Circuit Miles: 3,794 Transmission Underground Bank Miles: 396 Transmission Substations: 54 Transmission & Distribution Substations: 251 * As of May

4 Today s Discussion The Northern Pass Project Overview New Hampshire s People, Government, and Environment Project Status Update Public Policy Considerations for Large-Scale Transmission Projects 4

5 Northern Pass Transmission Project Overview An initiative proposed by Northeast Utilities (NU) and Hydro Renewable Energy, Inc. (Hydro-Québec) Proposes construction of a conventional HVDC transmission line from Des Cantons, Québec (Northern terminus) to Franklin, NH (Southern terminus) 1,200 MW transfer capability Conventional HVDC technology at 300-kV Québec terminal converts the power from AC to DC (rectifier) US terminal converts the power from DC to AC (inverter) $1.1 billion HVDC line, terminal, and AC facilities are participant-funded (approved by FERC); no impact on the New England regional transmission rate Des Cantons (Québec) Franklin (New Hampshire) Deerfield (New Hampshire) HVDC Line 345-kV AC Line HVDC Line terminations 345-kV AC line termination 5

6 Northern Pass Transmission Project Overview Approximately 180 miles of new transmission line 140 miles on existing PSNH rights-of-way (ROW) 40 miles of new ROW About 140 HVDC; 40 miles AC AC radial 345-kV line to connect to the New England bulk power grid at Deerfield, NH 6

7 The Participant-Funded Model Revenue Requirements HQ Hydro Renewable Energy, Inc. Transmission Service Agreement (TSA) 100% Rights to Use the NPT Line Bilateral agreement Cost-based rates Approved by FERC No impact on New England regional transmission rates Northern Pass Transmission, LLC Northern Pass Transmission Revenue Requirements 7

8 Key Drivers for Pursuing The Northern Pass New Hampshire Climate Action Plan Increasing state and federal environmental regulations Opportunity to secure additional low-cost, clean, and reliable energy source that acts as base load generation at no incremental transmission cost to regional or local customers Successful HVDC line already in-service in NH from Des Cantons, Québec to Sandy Pond, MA Built in the 1980s; 2,000 MW transfer capability, total of 192 miles in US; 128 miles located in NH 8

9 Project Benefits Economic Benefits Energy market price reductions annually for New England consumers based on the addition of new capacity to system, and the price taking nature of this generation Property taxes approximately $25 million across 31 communities Jobs 1,200 local jobs during construction No increase to regional transmission costs due to the participant-funded nature of the project Energy Benefits Enhanced regional fuel diversity up to a 20% reduction in reliance on natural gas (frees up enough natural gas to heat and supply hot water for nearly a million homes) Associated regional reliability improvement Enhanced regional resource adequacy Reduced congestion for exports out of Québec to New England Insurance against fuel shortages, major power plant outages or retirements Environmental Benefits Reduced regional carbon emissions, up to 5 million tons per year equivalent to the annual emissions of 900,000 cars Equivalent to 3,750 MW of wind (2, MW turbines) Equivalent to 10,000 MW of solar (over 40,000 acres) Helps meet state and regional clean air goals 9

10 Federal and State Permits & Approvals Federal Level: US Department of Energy: Presidential Permit (includes NEPA Environmental Impact Statement) Army Corps of Engineers (floodplains and wetlands) US Department of Agriculture/US Forest Service: Special Use permit (required to cross White Mountain National Forest on an existing ROW) Federal Energy Regulatory Commission -- Transmission Service Agreement (complete) State Level: NH Site Evaluation Committee: Certificate of Site and Facility 10

11 New Hampshire s People, Government, and Environment Total population of about 1.3M Most residents live in the southern part of the state More than 50% live in two southern counties that border Massachusetts Topography is heavily forested mountainous in the north hilly in the Southern and West flat along the coastal Southeast Northern region has about 50% of its land under protective easement Called The Granite State because of its extensive granite quarries 11

12 New Hampshire s People, Government and Environment Tradition of self-sufficiency, independence, and decentralized power Private property rights are highly valued and viewed as sacred State government is close to the people Town Meeting form of government dominates Largest state Legislature in the United States 400 representatives and 24 senators One state representative for every 2,500 citizens All state officials are elected every two years First in the nation presidential primary encourages political activism 12

13 Advancing The Northern Pass in NH October 2010 Project announced publically event attended by NH s Governor, local officials, represented labor, and media Submission of formal DOE application coincided with announcement; included the identification of a preliminary referred route and alternate routes Proposed preferred route: 140 miles on existing ROW; 40 miles on new ROW from Deerfield to the Canadian border Alternative routes proposed were outside of the existing ROW and would have required additional land acquisition Initial media coverage about project and its benefits was favorable 13

14 Advancing The Northern Pass in NH October Project initiated intensive communications and outreach along the preliminary preferred route filed with the DOE Negative reactions from residents in Northern NH almost immediately received; they mobilized through the use of community meetings and protests, newsletters, and social media Opponents concerns focused on private property rights, their fear of the use of eminent domain, view shed impacts, effects on property values and travel and tourism DOE held seven scoping meetings around the state in March 2011 Legislation proposed in 2011 to prevent the use of eminent domain for non-reliability projects 14

15 Advancing The Northern Pass in NH October In April, project amended its DOE application; withdrew most of the alternative routes to focus on the use of existing ROWs; and began to identify and secure land or easements in the northernmost section of the state that have the support of underlying landowners. Spring 2012 The Legislature modified the state's existing eminent domain process to prohibit its use for a transmission facility, unless a project is deemed a reliability upgrade Fall 2012 The project is very close to securing a Northern route; we expect to announce it later this year 15

16 Since Our Project Announcement, New England s Dependence on Natural Gas Has Climbed to Historic Levels New England Energy Production Source Data: ISO-NE 16

17 The Increasing Need for Energy Diversity in New England has Not Deterred Northern Pass Project Opponents Not unlike other large-scale transmission projects, opponents include: merchant energy generators environmental organizations local residents and abutters Ironically, since the time The Northern Pass was announced, many of these same organizations have not opposed the visual impacts of two significant wind projects with 400-foot towers located on virgin ridge lines in New Hampshire s northern and central regions and their associated transmission lines 17

18 Our Northern Pass Experience Raises Interesting Public Policy Questions that Our Industry Must Continue to Sort Through, Some Being Addressed in FERC Order 1000 At a time when consumers are demanding lower rates, improved reliability, and cleaner energy sources, how do we overcome the NIMBY challenges inherent in siting new transmission? Is a decentralized, free market approach to transmission planning keeping up with society s increasing demand for electricity? With siting authority split between federal and state agencies, who is ultimately responsible for ensuring that the public good is appropriately considered? Is it realistic to expect participant-funded projects to step forward, given the public opposition and protracted siting and permitting challenges that have become the norm for many large transmission projects, despite the economic consumer benefits these projects provide? 18

19 We Believe The Northern Pass Continues to Be Critical to Our Region s Energy Stability NU remains committed to delivering the economic, environmental, and energy supply benefits The Northern Pass will provide to New Hampshire and New England consumers 19
