Finally, Smooth Sailing For Offshore Wind In Massachusetts
The great state of Massachusetts was once the scene of a years-long legal battle over the very first offshore wind farm in the USA. No, not the Block Island wind farm. That’s in Rhode Island. It was the proposed Cape Wind project. A group of local opponents won the battle, with some help from a member of the Koch family. Now the tide has turned and a massive new flotilla of wind turbines is rising up over the horizon.

OPINION: Opponents Ask Yale, Wagner To 'Publicly Disavow' Northern Pass - InDepthNH.org
Communities in Northern New Hampshire view the Northern Pass project as a threat to their landscape, culture, and way of life. This perception motivated an extraordinary grassroots movement, in which working dairy farmers refused multi-million dollar offers for their land.[1] This left Northern Pass dependent upon Yale University and Wagner Forest Management, which leased land to Northern Pass for a viable route.[2] Despite Wagner’s willingness to undermine a firewall that residents created, citizens mastered thousands of pages of planning and zoning documents to defeat one of the largest utility companies in the United States.[3]

Building codes outdated - News - fosters.com - Dover, NH
New Hampshire’s building codes are outdated. And the energy efficiency portions may well be the most egregious. Making buildings tighter and better insulated adds a few hundred dollars to the initial cost but pays back in a very few (3-4) years. HB562, which has passed the N.H. House and moves to the Senate would fix that, (although it sadly contains a 30 month delay). Since this perspective has opponents, it’s worth mentioning that the pay back comes in the form of lowering heating and cooling bills, not just for the life of the mortgage, but the life of the building. Critics who express concern about affordable housing—and high energy costs—should note that it’s folks who need affordable housing who also struggle with the costs of heating and cooling.
