Business ratepayers will get a full Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative rebate, but residents will give up their partial rebates to fund energy efficiency, under a bill agreed by Tuesday by a New Hampshire Senate and House conference committee. That’s if this compromise isn’t vetoed by Gov. Chris Sununu – and that’s a big if.
House Bill 582 is one several energy bills that emphasize energy efficiency and renewables. Supporters say that such policies are not only environmentally correct, but would drive costs down by cutting down on generation and transmission costs. But to implement them, ratepayers often have to pay more in their energy costs.
