What is Community Power?
Under NH RSA 53-E, municipalities can pool a community's total energy needs to make a bulk purchase of electricity.
Community Power is a way for cities to get more energy from renewable resources, while possibly helping ratepayers save money on their energy bills, too. Listen to this audio guide to learn more about how Community Power programs work and how Keene could benefit.
"We’re buying the electricity in bulk for the entire city. The city basically does that for your water. Why can’t they do it for your electricity?"
--Denis MacDougall, City of Medford, Mass.
