  • A RGGI Primer | Conservation New Hampshire
    Repealing RGGI puts New Hampshire in a lose lose situation We still pay the cost but receive none of the benefits Repealing will impact business more as they typically purchase power from regional suppliers The cost of the program to New Hampshire ratepayers is insignificant but the economic benefits are real According to PSNH the cost of RGGI to the average NH household is 0 36 per month PSNH Residential Customers 420 000 at 600 kwh month paying 0 36 per month for RGGI PSNH Small Business Customers 73 000 at 2 000 kwh month paying 1 20 month for RGGI PSNH Large Business Customers 1 400 at 100 000 kwh month paying 60 month for RGGI PSNH Industrial Customers 120 customers at 880 00 kWh month paying 528 month for RGGI RGGI helps keep dollars in the NH economy Currently our state exports over 2 6 billion annually importing fossil fuels from other states and other countries By reducing energy demand through investments in energy efficiency NH can begin keeping some of this money in our state to benefit our local economy RGGI is reducing fuel use across the state In its first year grants from the program reduced the following Electricity 7 534 000 kWH equivalent of that used by 1 100 NH homes in 1 year Oil 54 000 gallons equivalent to that used by 86 NH homes in 1 year Natural Gas 50 000 therms equivalent to that used by 64 NH homes in 1 year Propane 22 000 gallons equivalent to that used by 66 NH homes in 1 year RGGI has created real on the ground jobs in the state In its first year over 70 FTE jobs were created through RGGI fund RGGI reduces energy bills through investments in energy efficiency RGGI is fuel blind meaning that it invests in efficiency for electricity as well as for thermal RGGI can replace light bulbs as well as insulate roofs saving real dollars for businesses and homeowners New Hampshire Businesses Need to have Consistentcy in Order to Make Informed Decisions Repealing RGGI after only 24 months is a drastic change in state energy policy Rather than focus on repeal legislators would be better served working with businesses and conservation stakeholders to examine the RGGI program and come up with changes This program review is scheduled to happen next year NH has established goals to reduce carbon pollution If the legislature repeals RGGI what is the plan to reduce pollution invest in energy efficiency and meet the goals of 80 reduction by 2050 RGGI is a market based system that has worked The auction process has driven the cost of pollution regulation down Much of the push for RGGI repeal is coming from out of state folks with a commercial interest in continuing to pollute The House Science Technology and Energy Committee will vote on this legislation Tuesday February 15th Please take a moment to let them know what you think Our Executive Director talked about
