Gov. Chris Sununu vetoed a bill to expand solar energy credits Monday, arguing it would burden electricity utilities even as advocates said it would help boost municipal and commercial solar projects.

In a letter released Monday, the governor said the law, House Bill 365, was a “regressive cost burden on citizens that benefits large-scale solar developers while hurting all ratepayers,” And he argued that the bill, which he called a subsidy, would cost “hundreds of millions of dollars” in higher electric bills.
