It's my understanding that if Hudson Light and Power does not have a second connection to the power grid that ISO New England will assess a "terminus fee". However, I have not found a good reference on the web to substantiate this. ... See MoreSee Less

Q and A meeting with Eversource Energy

Monday, November 14th, 7:00pm at Hudson High School

Eversource Energy wants to build an 8.9 mile long, 115 thousand volt, 80 foot wide, 70+ foot high, line of high tension powerlines from central Sudbury to Hudson Light and Power on Forest Ave in Hudson, MA

This project, billed as a “power upgrade”, will follow the abandoned MBTA rail line on Rte. 20 in Sudbury and will head west, abutting small businesses and 350+ families’ homes. It then enters the Assabet Valley Wildlife Refuge, 1 of only 4 federal wildlife refuges in MA and into the Marlboro State Forest, 1 of only 70 state forests in MA. It then enters Hudson and passes scores of families’ homes as it crosses White Pond Rd, Parmenter Rd and Main St near Kane Industrial Park. It then heads towards downtown Hudson where it will be connected to Hudson Light and Power.

Please read the most recent proposal by Eversource Energy as well as the initial Northeast Utilities Greater Boston study solution. You will realize that this has been in the planning stage for years with no input from stakeholders. Eversource Energy states that ‘Hudson town representatives” were met with and shown this proposed project in early 2015. The public was made aware February 2016. Eversource Energy constantly states that they have “sought community input and listened to stakeholders”. They have never done either. The current proposal by Eversource Energy is so flawed and packed with false information it is shocking.

Current project proposal

Transmission Projects

This project, as proposed, will result in property devaluation which will affect the tax assessment for the whole town. Thus affecting budgets for all Town of Hudson entities. Police, Fire, schools, DPW ect. The immediate environmental destruction, possible detrimental health effects and long term blight will be the legacy left by Eversource Energy, local, state and federal government and all entities that would allow this to happen. We as abutters, residents, and all who cherish these forests and our rural town must stop this from happening by organizing against this project, labeled “The Sudbury to Hudson Transmission Reliability Project”.

It is important to know that this project is surveyed to pass directly over ALL of Hudson’s watershed protection districts. It is certain that if the MBTA right of way (ROW) is the site for this utility route. Herbicides will be sprayed directly on the ground where the towers or trench (possible underground installation) is located. As you can see in the included Hudson watershed protection map, herbicides will be sprayed directly over al aquafers in Hudson!
