Senator Shaheen Statement on the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission Approval of the Triennial Energy Efficiency Plan

(Washington, DC) – U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) issued the following statement on the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission's (NH PUC) approval of the 2024-2026 Triennial Energy Efficiency Plan. This plan outlines ratepayer-funded energy efficiency program offerings through the NHSaves program.

"I'm thrilled to see the new Triennial Energy Efficiency Plan approved, which will allow NHSaves to help more families, towns and businesses reduce their energy use and lower their utility payments," said Senator Shaheen. "NHSaves enables New Hampshire to make the most out of the transformative investments from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act.”

NHSaves is a collaboration of New Hampshire's electric and natural gas utilities, including Eversource, Liberty, New Hampshire Electric Co-op and Unitil. The program provides New Hampshire customers with information, rebates and other incentives, as well as energy audits and further support designed to save energy, reduce costs and protect the environment.

Shaheen leads legislative action in the U.S. Senate to support energy efficiency projects and initiatives. Recently, Shaheen visited Exeter's Town Office to highlight a federal energy efficiency grant from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), commonly called the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, coming to Exeter and how it is leveraging efficiency and weatherization funding from NHSaves. In addition, Shaheen successfully included critical provisions of her energy efficiency bill – the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act (ESIC) – with Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) in the IIJA. Shaheen was also a key supporter of the Inflation Reduction Act, which included provisions for clean energy and climate investments in New Hampshire.
