What Is Missing In This Picture?

What Is Missing In This Picture?

                                        Franconia Village, November 23, 2010

There are no overhead power lines.


Franconia merchants paid out of pocket to bury the lines because:

  • buried lines enhance the aesthetic appeal of the town and of their business;
  • buried lines create more reliable power supply (no poles to be hit by autos);
  • buried lines demonstrate their civic pride.
Why can't Northeast Utilities take the same pride in New Hampshire?
