A Welcome Letter From Your New Correspondent

February 2018

Dear Local Energy Subscribers,

It is 2018 and the Granite State bustles with local energy activity. The Upper Valley launches Weatherize while the South West hosts its first Regional Energy Hub meeting. In the Lakes Region and the in the Seacoast, communities expand solar access to low-income neighbors. While the Legislature and PUC slowly chug along towards smarter energy policies, cities and towns from Lancaster to Nashua are racing to better their communities with efficiency and renewables.

You can rely on LES for these and more local energy stories from across the Granite State as well as other energy-related news, updates, and events.  Welcome!
