MANCHESTER, N.H. (June 25, 2023) – Eversource today announced that it has finalized agreements to transfer ownership of the properties that the energy company previously purchased to support the Northern Pass transmission project, including several to private parties who previously owned certain parcels. The remaining agreements, which represent the majority of the approximately 5,300 total acres, are with R&B Rentals LLC (Bear Rock Adventures) and Dead Water LLC (managed by Wagner Forest Management). Bear Rock Adventures has long been committed to supporting outdoor recreation, as well as economic development and environmental stewardship in New Hampshire, and similarly, Wagner has a longstanding presence in the state, conducting sustainable forest management and partnering with the state on recreational and conservation initiatives.

“Regardless of the outcome of any individual project or proposal, we’re committed every day to supporting our communities and the state in efforts to spur economic development and promote environmental stewardship to help keep New Hampshire a special place to live, work and visit,” said Eversource President of Transmission and Offshore Wind Projects Bill Quinlan. “We’re pleased that Bear Rock Adventures and Wagner Forest will be taking responsibility for the use of these parcels moving forward and are confident they will do so in a manner consistent with their longstanding support for the state’s strong interest in recreation and environmental stewardship. We also look forward at Eversource to continued collaboration with our communities, the state and other partners across New Hampshire to support the Granite State’s success.”

“This transfer of property represents the ongoing commitment that Eversource has continuously prioritized – being a good steward to the North Country,” said Corrine Rober, President of Bear Rock Adventures. “This opportunity represents meaningful economic development as Bear Rock continues to grow and expand access to recreational and tourism-based activities in the community. We were thrilled to work collaboratively with Eversource on this effort and appreciate their desire to see these industries continue to grow and thrive in the North Country.”

The transfers represent a final step in the closeout of the Northern Pass project and cover a total of 92 properties spanning 15 towns and four counties, varying in size from seven to 330 acres. A majority of the properties are located in Coos County.
