On May 6, the New Hampshire House of Representatives concurred with the Senate-approved version of HB 365 by voice vote, after it had earlier cleared the Senate by voice vote. This clears the path for the bill to go to Governor Chris Sununu’s desk after it completes the enrollment process.
HB 365 increases the maximum size of a project eligible for participation in New Hampshire’s net metering program from 1 megawatt to 5 megawatts. If the bill becomes law, observers anticipate the development of significantly more solar power projects in New Hampshire.
We expect that HB 365 will be sent to the Governor’s desk for signature in the next week or two. Once the bill reaches his office, the Governor has five days to either sign the bill into law, veto the bill or let it become law without his signature.
