Another New England electricity provider has proposed a transmission line to carry hydropower from Quebec through New Hampshire.

The proposal, titled Granite State Power Link, bears some marked similarities to the Northern Pass proposal. 

Granite State Power Link would carry roughly 1,200 megawatts of power from hydroelectric dams in Quebec at a price of roughly $1 billion.  The Northern Pass would carry roughly 1,100 megawatts from Quebec at a price of roughly $1.6 billion.
