Join the New Hampshire Local Energy Solutions (LES) Work Group for the first webinar of 2017! This webinar is focused on energy efficiency and NH’s new Energy Efficiency Resource Standard (EERS), a big step forward for efficiency funding in our state. First we’ll dive into the creation of the EERS and highlight important terms and dates in the approved settlement agreement. Next we’ll discuss aspects of the upcoming three-year implementation process, including what it means for residents, businesses, and towns across NH. Finally, we’ll provide an overview of current program offerings, how to realize the benefits of energy efficiency right now, and what to expect in the future. This webinar is presented by our very own NH efficiency experts, so whether you’re new to energy efficiency or already know how important it is, you’ll be able to get answers to your questions.

New Hampshire Wood Energy Council Recognizes Littleton Regional Healthcare Modern Wood Heating Installation
The NH Wood Energy Council recently recognized Littleton Regional Healthcare (LRH) for their installation of an advanced wood pellet boiler at their facility in Littleton, NH.
DHI of Colebrook, NH and Messersmith Mfg. Inc. of Bark River, MI installed the boiler(s) to switch from heating oil (or other fossil fuel) to locally sourced wood fuels, thereby reducing heating costs and using a renewable, low carbon fuel alternative.
As boilers tend to be hidden away from public view, the handsome locally made wood plaque will help visitors to the facility to understand the commitment that LRH has made to modern wood heating technology and sustainable energy. Learn more about NHWEC at www.nhwoodenergycouncil.org
