Why are above-ground Northern Pass lines still under consideration?

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

In the news: ice on power lines can take them down; the ice sometimes weighing in at 200 pounds the length of a wire. Why would above-ground Northern Pass power lines still be under consideration, when Maine, Ontario and Quebec — parts of — are now without electricity going on a week due to ice taking down lines? And this is only December. Power lines above ground are a foolhardy project. I won't belabor it.
