April 21, 2010

BERLIN, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire is getting $10 million in federal money to make buildings in Berlin, Nashua and Plymouth more energy efficient.

The funding was announced Wednesday as part of the Department of Energy's Retrofit Ramp-up initiative for 25 communities nationwide.

The money will be used for residential, commercial, municipal and industrial buildings.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, who along with Reps. Paul Hodes and Carol Shea-Porter, wrote to the Energy Secretary Steven Chu in support of the project, says the money will help expand progress the state has made in weatherizing buildings.
