Just the facts. No more “stories”! It’s hard to believe everything we read on the Northern Pass sponsored websites. But there are reliable sources out there.
Before I get to business, here are some images that I enjoyed finding while doing research:
March of the pylons. Or run for your lives! Reactions to high power transmission lines.
Hydro Quebec stop telling us your “stories”.
Time to bury the lines. But NOT through New Hampshire towns, impacting homes and businesses. Respect the people. Respect the environment. Please use proper utility corridors.
Okay back to business . . .

One example is in Stewartstown, New Hampshire, the Northern Pass is proposing underground lines in an attempt to avert conservation easement restrictions on the land it needs to pass through to construct the rest of the high voltage transmission line. We need to make sure this doesn’t happen.
For an important article about impacts and visual simulations read: http://www.notonorthernpass.com/2016/03/30/dont-take-information-face-value-research-np/. Visit these sites but given the source not sure how reliable it is. As the article above says, check data against what you’re familiar with: http://www.northernpasseis.us/library/draft-eis/visual-impact-assessment/ and/or click on the towns here for impacts: http://www.northernpass.us/towns.htm.

the “Northern Pass” is a clever deceptive name for
192 miles of
destructive, intrusive, unnecessary high voltage transmission lines
through the heart of New Hampshire

No matter the shape, I would still oppose the Northern Pass transmission line! Deer-shaped pylons concept: http://io9.gizmodo.com/these-beautiful-giant-sculptures-support-power-lines-wi-1630435303
