New Hampshire is bringing a new energy solution to its legislation. In April 2023, the Community Power program will go live. This new program allows a potential solution to bring New Hampshire communities to the center of energy supply decision-making.
A panel presentation held at the Derry Municipal Center on Jan. 24th, discussed what Community Power is and how local communities can take advantage of this upcoming program.
“Community Power presents a potential solution that puts New Hampshire communities and local control at the center of energy supply decision-making,” said Joe Kwasnik, representative of the NH Network Legislative Work Group and the panel’s moderator.
Panelists included Clifton Below the Assistant Mayor of Lebanon and Board Chair- Community Power Coalition of NH, Henry Herndon an energy consultant, Bart Fromuth the CEO of Freedom Logistics, Stuart Ormsbee the Vice President of Power Supply Strategies for Colonial Power Group Inc., Don Kreis the Consumer Advocate of New Hampshire, Terry Clark the Cheshire County Commissioner, and Lisa Sweet the Chair of Community Power Coalition of NH.
In attendance was also the Derry Net Zero Task Force represented by Joshua Bourdon, a founder of the Derry Net Zero Task Force and Craig Lazinsky, the Vice Chair. They talked about what the Derry Net Zero Task Force was, how it got started, and how they have helped Derry. “What we tried to do in Derry was to take an energy committee and really go further,” Bourdon said during the presentation. Bourdon and Lazinsky were also available later in the program to answer questions in the Q&A segment.
