House voting on moratorium on new energy projects

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- New Hampshire's House is considering a moratorium on new wind turbine and electric transmission line projects like the 187-mile power line proposed by Northern Pass.

The House is scheduled to vote Wednesday on a bill that would put a halt to the projects until the state issues a comprehensive energy plan.

Moratorium supporters argued the state should wait until two studies affecting energy projects are completed. One would review the process followed in siting the projects while the other would create an energy plan.

Moratorium opponents cited the same studies as the proper venues to make decisions about the state's energy future. They also argued a moratorium would hurt efforts to attract new businesses and attain the state's goal of achieving a 25 percent reliance on energy from renewable sources.
