    In 2018 New Hampshire launched a new Low-Income Solar Program. The program was designed in accordance with a state law directing that no less than 15% of the Renewable Energy Fund go toward benefiting low-moderate income residential customers. The first round of funding resulted in the development of three unique projects. Join us Tuesday, February 26, 12-1pm to learn about how these programs are spreading the benefits of distributed solar to low-income communities across New Hampshire.

    CCL is building political will for Congress to pass the recently introduced Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (HR 763). This bipartisan legislation is effective in addressing climate change (reducing America's emissions 40% within 12 years), good for people (improves health and puts money into people's pockets), good for the economy (creating 2.1 million new jobs), and revenue neutral (does not grow government). The meeting is at 16 Highland St, just behind the Plymouth Post Office. It begins at 5:30 pm and pizza and vegetables will be provided.
