In recognition of the sixth annual National Clean Energy Week (NCEW), Governor Chris Sununu issued a proclamation celebrating September 26-30, 2022, as Clean Energy Week in the state of New Hampshire.
In his proclamation, Governor Sununu recognized the growing importance of clean energy, noting in 2020, 19 percent of New Hampshire’s electricity came from renewable resources—including small-scale solar installations. Last year, Governor Sununu joined more than half of the nation’s governors in issuing proclamations to recognize NCEW in their respective states.
“We thank Governor Chris Sununu for joining us in celebrating National Clean Energy Week,” said Heather Reams, chair of NCEW and president of Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES). “Across the country, the cost of living continues to rise. It is critical that we take a hard look at the solutions clean energy technologies provide to address America’s most pressing environmental, economic, and national security needs. The sixth annual NCEW and Policy Makers Symposium connects government officials from both sides of the aisle as well as top industry leaders, researchers, investors, and advocates to discuss how we can make the prospect of a clean energy future a reality, not only in New Hampshire but throughout the country.”
“Across New Hampshire clean end 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,” said Governor Sununu in his 2022 proclamation. “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.”
NCEW began in 2017 as a bipartisan forum to bring together clean energy leaders and advocates across America. Through engaging programming such as the Policy Makers Symposium, the weeklong virtual event celebrates the critical role that clean energy plays in reducing greenhouse gas emissions while simultaneously bolstering the nation’s economy and energy independence.
