For Immediate Release
March 12, 2015
Kate Epsen, Executive Director of the New Hampshire Sustainable Energy Association and CleanTech Council, released the following statement today on the news of the agreement to sell PSNH electric generating facilities:
"This agreement recognizes the realities of today’s energy markets and and is good news for New Hampshire's economy,” said Kate Epsen of the NH Sustainable Energy Association. “More importantly, this agreement helps clear the way for more modern and secure energy infrastructure in New Hampshire. We know from our independent economic study that the new $5 million fund to invest in locally-sourced energy and efficiency measures will have a powerful effect in leveraging private capital and boosting jobs and economic growth. On behalf of the hundreds of New Hampshire businesses and the more than 15,000 people in our state whose jobs come from clean energy technologies, I want to thank Governor Hassan, Senator Bradley, Senator Feltes and company leadership for striking this agreement and continuing to move New Hampshire toward stabilized electric bills, cleaner technology, and higher job growth."
