[The Concord Monitor] Some of the energy flowing into all homes and businesses in New Hampshire could come from renewable resources if a bill now being considered by a House committee is approved. As the bill is written right now, the program would be voluntary. An amendment proposed in the Senate Finance Committee removed fees that utilities were originally required to pay generators. The amendment sponsor, Sen. Bob Odell, a Lempster Republican, said he feared the plan would face opposition from senators worried about the impact on ratepayers and he wanted to give the House Science, Technology and Energy Committee the chance to review the numbers. Some who testified at a public hearing yesterday said the bill wouldn’t be worth passing if the compliance fees weren’t restored and the program made mandatory.
