HEIRP Joint Meeting  

June 4, 2024 at 7:00 PM


A joint meeting of the Hingham Planning Board and the Hingham Zoning Board of Appeals will be held via Zoom on June 4, 2024 at 7:00 p.m. to facilitate public review of HMLP’s proposal to build a new electric substation. The proposed substation is part of HMLP’s proposal to ensure the reliability of Hingham’s electric supply with a new 3.2-mile underground, 115-kilovolt transmission line.

The June 4 Hingham Planning and Zoning Board meeting will be held remotely via Zoom, beginning at 7:00 p.m. The dial-in number is 929-205-6099. The Meeting ID is 826 9132 5254 and the Passcode is 424332. Web users may go to https://zoom.us/join and use the same Meeting ID and Passcode. A copy of HMLP’s applications and associated plans and studies can be found at: https://www.hingham-ma.gov/767/Applications-Pending.

The purpose of the joint meeting is to give Hingham officials, residents, and businesses a chance to learn more about HMLP’s project and to provide comments on HMLP’s substation plans prior to HMLP’s filings later this year with the Massachusetts Energy Facilities Siting Board and the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities, including a petition to exempt the proposed substation from local zoning review in Hingham.

On April 12, 2024, HMLP provided the Planning Board and Zoning Board with detailed plans for its proposed substation, as well as its proposal for mitigating construction and operation impacts associated with substation. This informal review by the Planning Board and Zoning Board will allow the two Town Boards, as well as members of the public, to examine and offer feedback regarding HMLP’s engineering and construction plans.
