New England's six governors are going to be talking about long-term energy strategy for the region during a meeting in Hartford, Connecticut.

Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin says he and the other five New England governors will meet Thursday to discuss the need for infrastructure to bring hydroelectricity from Canada and what can be done to ensure the region has enough natural gas to meet demand.

Shumlin says he and his colleagues discussed the issue as a group during a February meeting of the National Governor's Association, but they didn't have enough time so they planned to meet again in April.

He says the governors share a common interest in wanting to get green, clean, affordable energy to the New England states.
