We do not want to become New Jersey with mountains.

Stop Northern Pass

ACT has opposed the Northern Pass transmission line project since the very beginning, with our original and continuing position being that the project should not be built, period. On March 10, Rebecca Brown and Doug Evelyn testified to the NH Site Evaluation Committee, which will decide  whether the project gets a state permit for construction.  

We’ve inherited a national treasure. It’s time for our leaders to act. Let us preserve these unique landscapes for future generations.
— Doug Evelyn, ACT Trustee
