Renewable Energy Forums Planned in Exeter and Dover

Free and Open to the Public
March 17 (Tuesday) 6:00PM Exeter Public Library Meeting Room
March 24 (Tuesday) 6:00PM Dover Public Library Meeting Room

Recent legislation will make renewable energy systems more affordable for New Hampshire residents. The PUC’s Renewable Energy Fund will provide direct financial support for qualified solar electric and solar hot water systems and is intended to help move the State toward its goal of 25% renewable generation by 2025 (see RSA 362-F). When the new state funds are combined with federal tax credits, and other utility rebate programs, the upfront costs of a solar hot water (SHW), solar photovoltaic (PV), or wood-pellet boiler system are greatly reduced. In addition to being a sound environmental choice, these systems represent a real investment value, in the face of fluctuating energy prices and formerly stable stock markets. ReVision Energy LLC has amassed considerable experience in fitting solar and wood-pellet boiler technologies to homes, businesses, and municipalities across Maine and New Hampshire. Solar electric, solar thermal, and wood-biomass represent three of the most efficient and reliable renewable energy systems currently available. This presentation aims to provide details on the environmental, financial, and policy aspects of transitioning away from fossil fuel energy to clean and sustainable renewable energy.

Sponsored by the Exeter Energy Committee
