Berlin and Gorham have carefully watched the sale of Eversource's electric generating facilities because of the potential impact on their tax base. The 17.2-megawatt Smith hydro in Berlin is one of the city's largest taxpayers with a tax assessment of $56.5 million. The smaller, 2.2 megawatt Gorham hydro has an assessment of $3.9 million.
