Comments submitted by Acadia Center, Conservation Law Foundation (CLF), Natural Resources Defense Council
(NRDC), and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) on the New England Energy Vision transmission planning technical
forum held on February 2, 2021. Comments address ways the New England states can improve transmission planning and begin to determine what the transmission system will need to look like to interconnect high levels of zero-carbon resources, how to best maximize the use of the existing system and how to achieve states’ emissions reduction targets with well-planned and well-sited transmission as an enabler.
