To read the testimony that Jasen Stock, the NHTOA’s executive director, presented today (Feb. 14, 2017) to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committe on Senate Bill 129, click here.

If passed, SB 129 shores up support for New Hampshire’s biomass power plants. Facing historically low wholesale electricity prices, and with Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) laws in adjacent states phasing out the eligibility of New Hampshire biomass plants, SB 129 seeks to bolster the Class III (existing biomass power plants) portion of New Hampshire’s RPS. This will enable the state’s six independent biomass power plants to continue operations.
