New Hampshire Renews' policy will set us on the path to a future where everyone in New Hampshire – Black, brown, and white, Indigenous and immigrant – has a safe place to call home and clean air to breathe and water to drink.
We'll put hundreds of Granite Staters to work installing rooftop solar panels and retrofitting homes to drastically increase their energy efficiency, slashing carbon emissions and dramatically reducing utility bills for low-income customers.
Create thousands of dignified, well-compensated jobs and launch a large-scale, union-led job training program to give workers the skills necessary to join expanding Green New Deal industries.
Retrofit thousands of low-income homes to improve their energy-efficiency and install rooftop solar panels. Utility companies will be required to pay for these improvements, retrofitting a steadily increasing number of their customers’ homes each year.
Protect low-income utility customers from shutoffs by prohibiting utilities from charging these customers more than 2% of their income for annual utility bills and strengthen tenants’ rights.
