Last week Eversource official Lee Olivier told analysts that the company still thinks completely burying the Northern Pass line is “unnecessary” and “prohibitively expensive.”
But, he said, some additional burial might be possible.
That comes in response to the release of a new report from the Department of Energy that includes a look at the issue.
For years opponents of the controversial Northern Pass project have contended the overhead transmission lines could be buried.
And Northern Pass officials have insisted burial is too expensive.
