1. Mail your public comment for the Department of Energy-Presidential Permit

 

Presidential Permit - PUBLIC COMMENT ACTION ITEM

 

NECEC needs a Presidential permit. File a formal letter to the Department of Energy and describe why NECEC poses a threat to national security, promotes unfair trade, and how this project is not in public interest or improving power reliability to Maine rate payers.

Mail to:

Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE-20)

U.S. Department of Energy

1000 Independence Avenue SW.

Washington, DC 20585.

 

Please file under: OE Docket No. PP-438

 

Before a Presidential permit may be issued or amended, DOE must determine that the proposed action is in the public interest. In making that determination, DOE considers the environmental impacts of the proposed project pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, determines the project's impact on electric reliability by ascertaining whether the proposed project would adversely affect the operation of the U.S. electric power supply system under normal and contingency conditions, and any other factors that DOE may also consider relevant to the public interest. Also, DOE must obtain the concurrences of the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense before taking final action on a Presidential permit application.
