ENERGY IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
ABOUT OUR POLICY WORK
We build bipartisan coalitions of energy stakeholders to support favorable policies and practices that strengthen NH’s clean energy industry. We’re a proven, trusted, local organization that uses fact-based data to inform and educate NH legislators and their staff on driving creative alternatives for energy policies and programs. We represent our members at the State House and the Public Utilities Commission and provide resources for policymakers, businesses, local energy committees, municipal staff, and individuals.
We can't do it alone. It is important that you contact your elected officials to let them know legislation that supports clean energy is vital to NH's well being. The NH legislature and legislative process is available to each and every citizen and business. The legislative session runs through January through June of each year, with some study committees meeting in the summer and fall.
THE NH LEGISLATIVE PROCESS
Most meetings of the House Science, Technology, and Energy Committee are held in the Legislative Office Building in Concord (33 North State Street) while most meetings of the Senate Energy & Natural Resources Committee are in the State House (107 North Main Street).
The public can attend any meeting, but can only speak at the public hearing that begins the process. The public can also observe a committee's work sessions and the executive sessions (when voting on bills occurs) but cannot speak unless questioned.
