Northern Pass is a highly controversial proposal to run new 180 miles of new power lines from Canada, through northern New Hampshire, down to Concord, and then eastward to Deerfield.

While a high-profile debate in the state, many New Hampshire residents are unsure of how Northern Pass compares to past energy projects, what both sides have at stake, and what the future of the region's energy supply could look like.

In this three-part series presented in collaboration with New Hampshire Magazine, Sam Evans-Brown examines Northern Pass through these lenses, and in doing so, brings some new issues to light.
