    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. ​ ​
