CONCORD — New Hampshire Democrats who took control of the legislature in November are proposing a series of bills that could increase electric bills across the Granite State by as much as $5 billion over the next two decades.
One bill, HB 365, would subsidize large-scale solar projects at the expense of New Hampshire ratepayers. The bill is similar to one vetoed last year by Gov. Chris Sununu (R-Newfields) that would have dramatically expanded the state’s net metering program. And the state senate has already approved a trio of bills that could increase utility costs for Grate State ratepayers.
