For the second year in a row, Gov. Chris Sununu has vetoed a plan to expand net energy metering in New Hampshire.

The bill would raise, from 1 megawatt to 5, the limit on how much solar and hydropower towns and businesses can generate and sell back to the regional electric grid.

A couple dozen in-progress municipal and industrial energy projects could benefit. But Sununu sees the bill as a hand-out to big developers at residents’ expense.
