[Keene Sentinel] Keene Mayor George Hansel on Thursday [April 15] referred a draft community power program to the City Council’s Finance, Organization and Personnel Committee for further consideration.
The plan — which would enable the city to purchase power on behalf of Keene residents and businesses and source more energy from renewables — has been in the making for months. The program is a key element of the city’s sweeping renewable energy plan, which the council passed in January and aims to see Keene transition to 100 percent renewable sources for electricity by 2030 and for thermal and transportation energy by 2050.
