Leaders of the Avangrid subsidiaries involved with the New England Clean Energy Connect are appealing a Maine Superior Court ruling that the Maine Bureau of Public Lands did not have the authority to grant a lease for 33 acres of land needed for the controversial transmission project. The bureau also is appealing the ruling.
The ruling led Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Melanie Loyzim to initiate proceedings to consider suspending the department's order approving the project, which will import electricity generated by Hydro-Québec into the United States and through Maine into the New England grid for consumption by Massachusetts power customers.
