New Hampshire Clean Energy Week
September 24-28, 2018
Whereas, across New Hampshire clean and readily abundant forms of energy are powering more homes and businesses than ever before, and the State of New Hampshire has taken proactive steps to ensure the continued growth of renewable sources of energy, access to distributed generation power sources, and to increase the use of energy efficient technologies; and
Whereas, clean energy is an important part of New Hampshire’s energy future as it includes generation from renewable sources such as wind, solar, hydro, and geothermal sources, and also includes nuclear, natural gas, and carbon capture technologies, as well as energy storage; and,
Whereas, the clean energy sector is a growing part of the economy and has been a driver of economic growth in New Hampshire in recent years; and,
Whereas, these are jobs that cannot be outsourced due to the on-site nature of construction, installation, and maintenance, and clean energy jobs are inherently local and contribute to the growth of local economies; and
Whereas, we must harness the power of New Hampshire’s entrepreneurs and small businesses and ensure government collaboration to assert American energy leadership and dominance in the global marketplace, and assure low-cost reliable energy here at home;
Now, Therefore, I, Christopher T. Sununu, Governor of the State of New Hampshire, do hereby proclaim September 24-28, 2018 as New Hampshire Clean Energy Week in the State of New Hampshire, and call this to the attention of all citizens.
In Testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the State of New Hampshire to be affixed this 30th day of July, 2018.
Christopher T. Sununu
