Five First Nations file brief with DOE opposing New England Clean Energy Connect
- Oct 7, 2020 9:04 pm GMT
Much of the opposition to the proposed New England Clean Energy Connect transmission project has come from people upset by the fact that building it will require cutting a new corridor through 53 miles of forest currently used for timber in western Maine.
But the project also is opposed by five of the Canadian groups of indigenous people known as the First Nations, who claim that 36 percent of Hydro-Québec’s hydroelectric power belongs to them because it is generated by facilities built in their ancestral territories without their consent.
