A new round of plans for energy efficiency programs in New Hampshire is set to take effect after two years of controversy.
The state’s Public Utilities Commission approved small changes to the $250 million program that helps Granite Staters with things like putting insulation in their home, or buying energy efficient appliances.
Energy efficiency is widely accepted as a way to reduce energy bills and fight climate change.
But two of the three commissioners, Daniel Goldner and Pradip Chattopadhyay, said in a majority opinion they were not ruling on the plan as a whole based on their interpretation of a 2022 state law that set the energy efficiency program budgets in statute.
