I. What You Can Do This Week
“The Public Hearing in the House for SB 129 will be on April 11th at 1:30pm in the
Legislative Office Building Room 302-304. The bill passed the Senate and is now in the
House, where it will be difficult, but not impossible, to pass. This bill would make
several changes and improvements to our Renewable Portfolio Standard, including
increasing the Class II solar requirement, dedicating some Renewable Energy Funds to
low income households so they can benefit from more renewable energy, and removing
the 10 kW size limit from the residential solar rebate program at the PUC. It also
adjusts the Class I thermal amounts and the Class III ACP.” - NH CleanTech CouncilNHSEA. For talking points, contact Kate Epsen: kate@nhsea.org
This legislation may seem somewhat wonky and minimal, it’s important because it
trends in the right direction, towards more solar, and, even better, it’s bipartisan: Lead
sponsor Sen Jeb Bradley (R), co-sponsors Sen. Martha Fuller-Clark (D) (Portsmouth,
Durham) and UNH Professor and Sen. Dan Innis (R) (Rye, Newcastle, Hampton).
It plays offense, not defense. Should it pass, it might encourage our legislature to take
it to another level in coming years. For the House Energy Committee:
