LEARN MORE! ASK QUESTIONS! At the Community Power Information Sessions – Saturday June 8 & Tuesday June 11

Wilmot Public Library at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 8 or Tuesday, June 11.

The Community Power Coalition of N.H. (CPCNH), a state-wide nonprofit, buys electricity on the open market at a lower rate than can the utilities. That electricity is delivered to the homes of CPCNH members by the utilities, which in fact make all their money through distribution (not selling electricity). Ratepayers will continue to be billed by their utility but the cost of electricity will be lower.

In May the Merrimack County commissioners voted to join CPCNH and invited towns in the county to be subsidiary members. There are no upfront costs. Sale of electricity pays the CPCNH and also sets aside a fund for local use (e.g., improving meters, building local power sources). Any ratepayer may opt out of this program before it starts or at any time after it begins.

The Wilmot Community Power Plan Committee has recommended that the selectboard vote to join the county in their membership in the CPCNH. If you would like to know more about this and have questions, please come to the Wilmot Public Library at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 8 or Tuesday, June 11.
