Farmington, Maine

The Forks Town Hall

A Commissioner from the Public Utilities Commission will attend at each location as will Commission staff and a transcriptionist. This public hearing will give the Commission an opportunity to hear the views of members of the public as it considers Central Maine Power Company's CPCN for the NECEC, a 145 mile 1,200 MW transmission project. In a public witness hearing, any member of the public may participate by providing sworn testimony or they may present argument without being sworn; however, only sworn testimony becomes evidence in the case. The public witness hearing transcript will be publicly available in the case file (Docket No. 2017-00232) which may be accessed via the Commission's Case Management System.
