CONCORD - Last week, HB 1245, was signed into law. The omnibus legislation consisted of several bills concerning state agencies including SB 668, establishing an offshore wind commission.
Senator David Watters (D-Dover) issued the following statement in response:
“The development of offshore wind as a source of renewable energy is extremely important to New Hampshire’s economic and energy future. New energy sources are essential to job development opportunities, education, economic expansion, and protecting and preserving our environment. This commission will bring stakeholders together to prepare necessary laws and ensure that the needs of New Hampshire ratepayers are met. We are uniquely positioned when it comes to the development of offshore wind as a source of renewable energy and I am pleased to see the state moving forward through the passage of HB 1245.”
