There have been a number of recent changes to New Hampshire state policy regarding large-scale solar projects. HB 315 recently passed, creating a lot of questions for municipalities about community power aggregation, the increased 5MW cap, and what these changes mean for net metering.
Also recently announced, the 2021 American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) is allocating $350 billion to states, counties, school districts, and municipalities. Clean energy projects that address climate change, such as installing onsite or offsite solar, are eligible for ARPA funds.
What does this mean for solar in your town or city? Join ReVision Energy's Dan Weeks and John Branagan as they dive deeper into these topics and discuss practical applications for individual towns. They'll be looking at community case studies such as Dover, Nashua, Keene, and Hanover, all of whom have successfully developed municipal solar here in the Granite State.
Town and city councilors, administrators, public works directors, and energy committees all play an important role in bringing solar to NH towns; everyone is invited to attend and participate in this Q+A.
