you can check out those tools Henry just mentioned… check out real time costs for energy and what type of energy sources are being used to create our power in a given period
Jim Contois and Reb
43:41
What Is the likelihood of windfarms off the coast to contribute to our supply?
April Salas
44:21
Great question Reb. Ill queue that up for Henry during Q&A
Justin Baker
44:47
Is NH at all likely to implement TOU rates as a default to lower transmission costs?
Judy Payne
47:55
I got proposal to invest in community solar and the investment seemed like a very bad one. I’ve opted to take some $$ and put it into a very targeted alternative energy investment fund (ICLN) as a more cost effective way to contribute to moving to renewable energy. Does that make sense to others?
Jim Contois and Reb
50:34
What are aggressive goals for the RPS that would meet and go beyond the Paris Accord Agreement?
William Brown
55:08
Why not a carbon free energy standard? That would allow nuclear to be allowed in the mix.
Jim Contois and Reb
56:03
Our relationship to investment in renewable energy is directly related to our business growth. What is the depressive factors to repress this growth?
Barbara Callaway
56:36
Why does Gov. Sununu say that net metering increases cause higher rates for all rate payers?
Deb Nelson
56:58
Because the Governor gets campaign contributions from energy companies
Jim Contois and Reb
57:30
William, what will you do with the nuclear waste that is generated from nuclear energy sources?
Kristin Swan
57:35
To what extent do NH residents benefit from solar developers incentivized to operate in neighboring states? Are they disincentivized to provide NH residents access to their services because of state policy in their home states?
Judy Payne
57:43
Energy companies probably give to all candidates. What is his explanation of that position? It is important to understand.
William Brown
59:33
France is a great model for recycling nuclear waste. They get 70% of electricity carbon free from nuclear.
Ken Wells
59:58
Judy Payne: Energy companies do NOT contribute to all candidates. Michael Sununu is a lobbyist for an energy company…
Judy Payne
01:00:28
ok.
Judy Payne
01:01:09
I just want to know rationale given — albeit flawed — not simply the answer “energy companies contribute”… We need to know arguments given aloud so we can understand them and counter them.
Jim Contois and Reb
01:02:33
Who in NH is now engaging in CPA?
Marjorie Rogalski
01:02:37
NH gets at least 25% of its energy from Seabrook Nuclear plant most of the time. Gets over 60% from natural as Renewable area tiny contributor
Marjorie Rogalski
01:03:02
Renewable contribute about 7%
Marjorie Rogalski
01:04:02
The website Henry provided will name the communities considering Community Power
Deb Nelson
01:05:29
My understanding is that Seabrook Nuclear has a crack in it and needs serious attention. Do you know anything about this as a priority?
Judy Payne
01:06:25
Is there any legislation proposed to radically increase our RPS goals? Do governor candidates propose dramatic increases? Will there by later zoom sessions on pending legislation?
Robert Taylor
01:07:42
Gov. Sununu vetoes anything that would expand solar in NH, on grounds that it would drive up costs for NH electric users. Please respond.
Keith
01:08:57
Community Power seems like a big load for small towns. Is the CPNH organization a way to help small towns get this program into its community?
Justin Baker
01:10:24
Does the Federal ITC step down have any effect on the likelihood of community solar spreading?
Marjorie Rogalski
01:11:18
Is there anyway we can influence how the RPS is set?
Brian Callnan
01:13:37

There’s an NPR piece on the Sununu Family and Climate Change over the years from April 4, 2019 that might be helpful to look up.
Deb Nelson
