New Hampshire state lawmakers have upheld the governor’s veto of a plan to subsidize New Hampshire’s small biomass power plants.
The proposal was attached to a bill that would have set up a study committee on microgrids.
It would have required utilities to add a small fee to customers’ bills. That fee would have subsidized six of the state’s wood-fired power plants for the next three years.
