    POLICY PRIORITIES: 2022 WE SUPPORT programs & policies that strengthen NH's economy, protect public health, & conserve natural resources Clean Energy NH is dedicated to making meaningful progress toward a clean energy future every year. As such, we work with policymakers on a bipartisan basis to find compromise solutions that can pass in any political environment. Priorities for the 2022 legislative session: Ensure the sustained funding and policy continuity of New Hampshire’s energy efficiency programs. While CENH will continue to push for a favorable outcome in the PUC docket that produced the November 12th order defunding the state’s efficiency programs, in the absence of a resolution we are supporting legislation that stabilizes and future-proofs the state’s efficiency programs. Expand the definition of a “political subdivision” to expand the number of entities that can benefit from affordable community scale renewable energy . Adjust the definition of small customer-generators up to 500kw to enable more commercial clean energy projects. Increase the limit on net metering for customers with large amounts of electricity demand, such as manufacturers or other commercial and industrial customers, Eliminate the arbitrary restriction on participation in group net metering for customers who also have installed net-metered generation on-site, but have additional electrical load that they could off-set, Establish an investigation regarding cost effective, timely, and predictable interconnection practices for new renewable energy facilities, Clarify and include energy storage systems in the definition of limited electrical producer to provide communities with an economic incentive to reduce New Hampshire’s share of regional transmission costs; Eliminate barriers to access to low and moderate income community solar programs. Clean Energy NH opposes legislation to: Establish solar panel recycling programs that place unreasonable burdens on solar manufacturers, Duplicative and burdensome requirements for customer generators to provide replacement power in the event not meeting export obligations, and; Changes to the net metering tariff that exclude certain components, including compliance with the renewable portfolio standard , that would reduce the overall net metering credit. ​ ​

  • OFFSHORE WIND | Clean Energy NH

    OFFSHORE WIND A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR NEW HAMPSHIRE WHY OFFSHORE WIND? Offshore wind energy provides a multitude of opportunities for New Hampshire, including: ABUNDANT CLEAN ENERGY NEW, WELL-PAYING JOBS ROBUST INVESTMENTS It is estimated that the coast of New Hampshire has enough offshore wind potential to supply 2,600 MW of clean energy to the region's power grid, enough to power the entire Granite State. Due to New Hampshire's unique geographic position, the state is also well-positioned to host offshore wind supply chain companies. Offshore wind developments can provide significant investment in the state's economy and offer a suite of well-paying jobs across a suite of supporting industries. OUR INVOLVEMENT Clean Energy NH has been a leader in the effort to bring offshore wind to the state. Our staff are known as experts on the industry and have worked tirelessly to build a network of support for the industry. In 2018, Clean Energy NH led a foreign trade delegation to the Kingdom of Denmark, a global leader in offshore wind, to learn from the country's successful offshore wind projects and promote New Hampshire as a prime site for offshore wind supply chain development. Clean Energy NH is actively involved in various efforts to advance offshore wind, including monitoring the BOEM Gulf of Maine Renewable Energy Task Force. STATUS New Hampshire is one of three states, along with Massachusetts and Maine, participating in the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management's (BOEM) Gulf of Maine Renewable Energy Task Force. The Task Force, composed of local and state elected officials and agency representatives, is a federal requirement recognized as the first step towards development. During the Task Force, members will discuss and finalize lease areas in federal waters off the New England coast, along with various other important topics related to offshore wind development including impacts on wildlife, fishing, ocean travel, and more. ​ Governor Sununu has also announced the formation of four advisory boards to work with stakeholders and advise Task Force members. The advisory boards include: Fisheries, endangered species, and environmental impacts advisory board, chaired by the commissioner of the Department of Environmental Services, or designee Workforce, economic development, and supply chain advisory board, chaired by the commissioner of the Department of Business and Economic Affairs, or designee Existing offshore industries advisory board, chaired by the executive director of the Pease Development Authority, or designee Siting, transmission, and infrastructure advisory board, chaired by the director of the Office of Strategic Initiatives, or designee ​ LEARN MORE Clean Energy NH maintains an extensive database of resources related to offshore wind. Access the database to learn more about this important clean energy source here !
