Gov. John Lynch has signed the proposal that promotes expanding renewable energy in New Hampshire, a move that’s expected to reduce pollution and expand the alternative energy industry.
The legislation requires electric utilities to buy a growing percentage of their energy from sources such as wood-fired plants, wind farms and hydro power. The goal is to have 25 percent of the state’s electricity coming from renewable sources by 2025.
As he signed the bill on Friday, Lynch said the plan will help lessen the need for foreign oil and expensive natural gas, build a stronger state economy and protect the environment.
