Letter: Feltes is the champion of clean energy we need

During both a pandemic and a climate crisis, we need thoughtful, decisive leaders in office. We believe Sen. Dan Feltes is the right leader for this moment and the right person to launch our clean energy economy into the next decade.

Together, we have decades of experience working in all elements of our clean energy economy. Without hesitation, we can say this is the most ambitious and comprehensive clean energy plan ever released by a candidate for governor in the Granite State. As business people and environmentalists committed to climate action, we oppose new fossil fuel infrastructure and appreciate Dan’s efforts to encourage Liberty Utilities to meet existing demand for natural gas without a costly new pipeline while prioritizing zero-emission alternatives for low-income Granite Staters.

In the state Senate, he has been the clean energy champion, sponsoring dozens of pieces of legislation and negotiating bipartisan compromise to get real results.

Chris Sununu is the barrier to clean energy progress in New Hampshire. Why does Chris Sununu selectively ignore science? Because he remains tightly intertwined with the same fossil fuel interests that benefit from sinking our money into old-fashioned, dirty energy. For our state, environment, and future we need leadership that listens to science and has the vision and urgency to meet this challenge. This isn’t about our generation, it’s about every generation to come. Dan is the candidate who can deliver the real, comprehensive change we need. We cannot wait.
