Energy Division

The Office of Energy and Planning operates several Energy Programs in partnership with both private and public entities to promote a sustainable, environmentally sound and least-cost energy future for New Hampshire.

The Energy Division is tasked with:

  • Promoting energy efficiency and reducing energy costs by supporting programs for low-income households, state government buildings, businesses and industry, and schools and towns;
  • Exploring opportunities to expand the use of renewable, domestic energy resources such as biomass, wind and solar energy;
  • Administering state and federal programs related to energy.

Additionally, as directed by Senate Bill 191 of 2013, the energy division is assisting with the development of a revised 10-year statewide energy strategy, the aim of which is to:

  • Provide forward-looking guidance on electric, gas, and thermal energy strategies.
  • Optimize the ready availability of energy supply, energy affordability, the retention in-state of energy expenditures, the retention of jobs, and the use of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency policies, including demand-side policies.
  • Minimize negative impacts to the economy, the environment, and the natural beauty of our state.
