    I was a tad conservative on my estimate, the utility appealed to the state Supreme Court to cancel the referendum

    Looks like Hydro Quebec is getting worried

    The various paid advocates are saying its a game changer while the groups opposed say its a drop in the bucket. Maine is a major renewable power producer so it doesnt need renewable power but cheap power is definitely an eye opener. My guess is the deal limits power sales during grid peaks so the sales only happen when the power is less valuable.

    At this point CMP needs to put enough doubt in an undecided voters mind that they vote to allow the powerline.

    A savings to each customer of about $4 a year. Yeah, still not buying it.

    My limited understanding is they are offering a block of power to some specific large customers. The ones who sign up get the savings while the rest of the rate payers savings are nebulous at best. The state should just charge a transmission fee tied to KW shipped and the amount of congestion on the grid.
