Application for presidential permit OE Docket No. PP-371 Northern Pass Transmission LLC: Letter of MOU Cancellation

March 7, 2011

Northern Pass Transmission LLC appreciates the cooperation of the Department of Energy (“DOE”) in negotiating the Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) among DOE, Northern Pass and Normandeau Associates Inc.

We nevertheless have concluded that it is desirable to terminate the MOU and the role of Normandeau Associates in the environmental impact statement (“EIS”) process so that the EIS can be prepared free of the public concerns that have been voiced. We therefore request DOE’s
agreement to terminate the MOU and the role of Normandeau Associates as DOE’s EIS contractor at this early stage of the process so that the EIS can be prepared free of the public concerns that have been raised.

For more information on the Northern Pass Pending Application please see the Northern Pass EIS website.
