CONCORD – Earlier today, Governor Sununu signed SB 91 into law. This legislation, sponsored by Senator David Watters (D-Dover) enacts omnibus legislation on renewable energy and utilities bill in New Hampshire.
Prime Sponsor Senator David Watters (D-Dover) issued the following statement:
“The clear need for examining and expanding our renewable energy options has never been more evident. Expanded net metering will help our citizens, businesses, and industries become more innovative, reduce their energy costs, and ultimately reduce local property taxes. My section of this bill dealing with energy storage is essential for moving all sources of renewable energy forward, including solar and offshore wind. There is much work to be done to bring us closer to a sustainable future, and I am confident that this legislation represents the next step in New Hampshire’s path forward.”
