April 17, 2015, Concord, NH. – The New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission has started an investigation regarding that “the past two years  have seen significant transitions in New Hampshire’s wholesale and retail electricity markets, and those of the New England region generally. ISO-New England (ISO-NE), the regional electricity market administrator, has pointed to an increasing dependence on natural gas-fueled generation plants within the region over the past two decades as aging coal, oil, and nuclear plants have been retired.”

In a similar light, the Nashua Regional Planning Commission, where the Town of Mason is a member, has started its own investigation. The planning commission’s motto is “Value yesterday, Enhance tomorrow. Plan Today.”
The minutes of the Energy Facilities Advisory Committee (EFAC) subgroup chartered for the planning can be found here, but are a bit behind. Steve Wells is the Mason representative on this subgroup.
