Calling the Site Evaluation Committee’s decision to deny Northern Pass’s application a rush to judgement, Eversource’s attorneys say regulators made numerous legal errors in arriving at its decision.
In a brief filed Monday, the attorneys reiterated many of the arguments raised in the utility’s request for a rehearing before the SEC in its appeal to the state Supreme Court.
The company contends the SEC failed to do the work required under statutes and its rules, strayed from normal regulatory procedures, made an arbitrary and unreasonable decision, and failed to weigh the project’s benefits against its undue impacts.
