Critical Action! Attend the Community Power PUBLIC INPUT Sessions on Oct 3rd or Nov 14th (6pm)

Greetings Greenspace friends,


Take action now to lower energy costs and advance Concord's renewable energy goals! Join us at the Community Power Public Input Sessions on Oct 3rd and Nov 14th 6pm (details below) to learn about the benefits of Community Power and hear from communities who have implemented community power programs. Implementing Community Power is a CRITICAL step toward our city's 100% renewable energy goals.

Lower Rates – Consumer Choice – Local Control – Clean Energy


What is Community Power?

Community Power allows customers to save money when buying energy and to expand their energy choices by pooling the electricity demand of participating residents across each town to increase buying power and expand local control.


Current Situation

Several cities and towns across New Hampshire have already enrolled in the Community Power initiative and are seeing the benefits of lower energy costs and a drive towards renewable energy. Currently, the City of Concord is actively researching the feasibility of creating a Community Power Program. To meet the challenge of climate change impacts, City Council has adopted 100% renewable energy goals for both City operations and residential energy use. A Community Power Program will work on behalf of the community to provide affordable electricity and increase the use of renewable energy.


Goals of Community Power

· Lowering electricity rates and saving customers money

· Creating clean energy choices for customers

· Supporting local control of energy upgrades, programs, and projects
