Public Session on Energy Saving and Climate Solutions in New Hampshire
Get the latest and the greatest about New Hampshire climate solutions and energy saving programs called the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative and the Clean Power Plan. New Hampshire has long been a leader for protecting our environment and now is our chance to make the state a leader in climate solutions. Doing more with less energy means reducing dangerous air pollution and climate change causing pollution. Less asthma with more control over your energy bill!
Right now, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative or RGGI is under review by all of the participating states. Now is the time to make it stronger by lowering the carbon cap annually by 5%, requiring more investments for residential and low income households, closing loopholes, and ensuring fair contribution rates by all energy users.
Ryan Martel, Ceres Senior Manager, Policy Program
