A bipartisan bill that would restart state energy-efficiency programs could reach the governor’s desk as early as February. It passed the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee in a unanimous vote on Jan 18. The full Senate will vote soon.
New Hampshire residents have answered the call. Dozens have sent photos of themselves holding up a sign about why energy efficiency is important to them.
Governor Sununu has voiced his support for the bill. He said the bill was a cost-effective way to provide accountability and stability to energy efficiency programs and set them up for long-term success. “I ask you to vote to support House Bill 549 as amended and expeditiously move it forward to my desk for signature,” he said.
Help protect energy efficiency programs in our state!
