Pipeline Proposed for Southern New Hampshire Area
The Northeast Energy Direct (NED) Pipeline is a large pipeline expansion project being proposed by Tennessee Gas Pipeline and Kinder Morgan Energy Partners. It includes a large new natural gas transmission line that would extend through Pennsylvania, New York, and Massachusetts. A revision to the plan in December 2014 extends the planned pipeline through 71 miles of southern New Hampshire.
NH Sierra Club opposes this pipeline. Information sessions are scheduled for Wednesday, July 29 and Thursday, July 30. See more information below.
- The overall plan ignores formalized goals for fuel diversity in New England;
- The pipeline would not fit regional and state energy policies;
- The pipeline would increase demand for fracked gas;
- Our communities, including important conservation land in the Monadnock area, would be at risk.
Ultimately, the NED pipeline proposal ignores the fastest, cheapest and most effective way to address our state’s energy demands: energy efficiency, weatherization and conservation.
