Transmission Right of Way Rules, Information


A right-of-way is the corridor of land that Eversource uses to access, construct, operate and maintain electric and other utility facilities. Rights-of-way typically contain wood or metal structures with high-voltage electric lines.

We manage thousands of miles of transmission line rights-of-way throughout Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Making sure that these rights-of-way are free of obstructions is vital to public and employee safety, and ensures a reliable electric system for everyone.

Inspecting and protecting these rights-of-way is a critical part of what we do.
