Observations on Radically Rural | Keene Sentinel
In the Energy track we heard about new ways to make new things happen. The new ways include listening.
There’s a town near Keene by the name of Westmoreland that’s long had spotty electrical service. Eversource (the power provider) had considered building a second transmission line into town to address the problem. But before doing that its people sat down with local people and came up with a very modern and less disruptive alternative: battery storage. More costly in the short run, true, but better over the long haul.

Override needed on net-metering cap, George S. Hansel | Letters To The Editor |
Earlier this month, Gov. Sununu vetoed legislation that would raise the net metering cap from 1 megawatt to 5 megawatts in New Hampshire. If not overridden by the Legislature, this will prevent cities and towns across the state from pursuing their renewable energy goals. It will also limit opportunities for local elected officials to use creative solutions, like solar power generation, to combat rising costs and save taxpayer dollars.

Energy choice is about the future we want, by Thomas Webler | Letters To The Editor |
Dr. Fred Ward is right. Solar panels cannot generate electricity 24 hours a day, while nuclear power plants can. He’s also right that nuclear power plants make a lot of electricity on a little piece of land, while we would need to use more land to generate electricity with solar.

Solar plan benefits others at our cost, by Deborah S. Hutchings | Letters To The Editor |
Your article about proposed utility-scale solar arrays in the region (“Total Eclipse,” May 18-19) describe a proposed solar array in Fitzwilliam that will be built on “mostly forested” land and cover “about 111 acres.” The electricity will “help electric utilities in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island meet state-set goals for clean energy.”
