A Map For NH’s Energy Future:
NH Energy Week will help businesses, policy experts and nonprofits craft solutions that will work best for the state
BY COLLEEN VIEN
What came out of these statewide ‘Listening Sessions’ were a diversity of compelling stories illustrating a commitment to sustainable and cost-effective business practices both in the private and public sector.
We heard about local municipalities taking on successful energy efficient projects while being mindful and protecting their citizens from tax increases. We listened to businesses implementing energy efficient practices and programs and working with the state’s utility companies to realize cost savings. We also heard how our neighboring states are significantly benefiting from clean energy policies and the unfulfilled opportunities New Hampshire has before us.
While much discussion at the statewide level has focused on major infrastructure projects as the answer to New Hampshire’s energy challenges, it is apparent that other approaches merit discussion, exploration and action.
We welcome your involvement as we continue to cultivate open and balanced discussion of energy policy alternatives available to New Hampshire.
Together we can explore exciting possibilities and identify a path forward that is good for business, good for communities, good for the environment, based on sound economic principles, and helps to ensure that New Hampshire is in a stronger competitive position within the region. We believe New Hampshire’s Energy Future is Now.
The time is NOW! Take the lead.
