COLEBROOK, N.H. (AP) - After hearing from elected officials in New Hampshire, the Department of Energy is adding another public hearing on the proposed Northern Pass project and rescheduling others that had been set for this month.

Officials now plan to hold a hearing in Colebrook, in addition to previously announced hearings in Whitefield, Concord, and Plymouth. The dates haven’t been announced.

The department also has extended the comment period on the project to April 4.

Hartford, Connecticut-based Eversource has proposed a 192-mile transmission line from Pittsburg to Deerfield, carrying 1,090 megawatts of hydro-power produced by Canada’s biggest hydro generator, HydroQuebec.
