Community Power Panel
Soaring Energy Prices
NH communities pay soaring energy prices, due to over-reliance on natural gas for
generating the bulk of our electricity, a lack of forward-looking state energy policies, and
outdated electric utility restructuring laws.
Control Your Energy Supply
Community Power gives NH communities control of their energy supply decision-making
including: access to potentially less costly electricity, development of innovative local
energy supply projects, and benefits to local and state economies.
Community Power Panel
This event brings together leading proponents, organizers and providers of Community
Power to explain the who, what, when and how for others to seize this unique opportunity.
About Community Power
Community Power is coming to New Hampshire in April 2023. Energy costs are skyrocketing, and New Hampshire utility customers are paying the price. Everyone wants access to clean power with lower bills. Community Power can do it for you and more utility customers!
Over the last decade the threat of high rates from the utilities, expensive alternatives, air pollution, and the dearth of options for clean energy has given rise to a local option, one that will put your community in control instead of the utility. Community Power is an effective way to choose cheaper, clean energy for your home, business, town offices and other buildings. An option that will help you to pay less, act on climate, and lower air pollution whenever energy is used. This year, the NH Public Utilities Commission (PUC) ironed out the regulations under which Community Power could operate. Currently 25 NH communities are preparing to flip the “go” button starting April, 2023.
Community power is now a real option for you and your community.
