Gov. Chris Sununu didn’t nominate Public Utilities Commission Chairman Martin Honigberg to the Superior Court to make sure he would have no authority over any future utility projects such as Northern Pass, according to Sununu’s spokesman, Ben Vihstadt.
Honigberg was the chairman of the Site Evaluation Committee Feb. 1, 2018, when it denied Eversource/Northern Pass a certificate to build a for-profit, 192-mile high-voltage powerline from Pittsburg to Deerfield to bring Hydro-Quebec electricity to Massachusetts, a $1.6 billion project Sununu strongly supported.
