Letter: Override veto of net metering bill

Published: 6/10/2019 12:01:19 AM

I have met Gov. Chris Sununu, and he is certainly affable. But he is not listening to his constituents.

The citizens of New Hampshire elected a Democratic House and Senate in November, moving forward with bills to eliminate the death penalty and raise the net metering cap. Our governor vetoed both.

The first veto was overridden. The second should be, too.

With growing concern about climate change throughout this country, businesses that utilize clean energy are more likely to be viewed as favorable work environments for young workers. New Hampshire may actually be losing environmentally aware businesses and their employees because of its backward fossil-fuel promoting energy policies.

Please encourage your state representatives and senators to override Sununu’s veto on House Bill 365, thereby boosting municipal and commercial solar projects.
