Concord, NH | January 05, 2017

The NH Community Development Finance Authority, The Nature Conservancy and The NH Clean Tech Council together applaud our 82nd Governor, Chris Sununu, who in his inaugural address made clear his support for a comprehensive New Hampshire energy plan that looks to the future and protects ratepayers, employers, and NH’s environment.

We are united in our commitment to continue to provide the data, information and ideas necessary to help craft a 21st Century energy plan that is unique to our state and has the needs of future generations in mind.

New Hampshire is blessed with many natural resources that can be part of a diverse, efficient, and local energy mix. NH’s renewable energy portfolio is a critical starting point as we work to ensure that the energy mix of the future is developed with solid economic and environmental data to create a forward looking plan that incorporates input from multiple sectors, takes advantage of new opportunities, and utilizes the best information available.
