WHEN I WAS first elected to the Legislature in 2010, the biggest concern of the business community was high energy costs. Companies could relocate to Pennsylvania where, due to abundant supplies of natural gas, electric costs were substantially lower, about 12.5 cents per kWh. Right now NH electricity costs about 20 cents/kWh. Pretty much the same in the rest of New England. The problem has not been solved, but has been made worse.
