New Hampshire Governor Christopher Sununu has issued a state proclamation recognizing September 21-25, 2020 as Clean Energy Week in his home state.
In the proclamation, Gov. Sununu notes the importance of clean energy and highlights that New Hampshire “has taken proactive steps to ensure the continued growth of renewable sources of energy, access to distributed generation of power sources, and to increase the use of energy efficient technologies.”
New Hampshire is now one of thirteen states in the country to formally recognize National Clean Energy Week 2020. This marks the fourth consecutive year NCEW has been recognized by Governor Sununu.
Read the official text of the New Hampshire state proclamation below.
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 of 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, 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 21-25, 2020 as NEW HAMPSHIRE CLEAN ENERGY WEEK in the State of New Hampshire, and call this to the attention of all citizens.
National Clean Energy Week (NCEW), described by POLITICO as “a veritable who’s who of the Clean Energy World,” is an annual awareness week to recognize the value of clean energy including abundant job opportunities, economic growth, energy independence, consumer choice, lower energy prices, and a cleaner environment. NCEW is supported by CRES Forum, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that serves as NCEW’s fiscal agent.
