Video: Historic Plan to Sell Merrimack Station in New Hampshire

Video: Historic Decision Could Mean the End of Coal in New Hampshire

Tom Irwin | @TomIrwinNH

The New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission recently reached an historic settlement that requires Eversource to sell all of its power plants in the state. This will force its old and inefficient coal-fired plants – including Merrimack Station in Bow – to compete on an open market against more economically and environmentally friendly sources of energy, like solar and wind. CLF is pushing to make New England coal-free by 2020 and this settlement is another significant step towards reaching our goal. Click above to watch CLF New Hampshire Director Tom Irwin talk about Merrimack Station and what this decision will mean for our climate and the people of New Hampshire.

Before you go… CLF is working every day to create real, systemic change for New England’s environment. And we can’t solve these big problems without people like you. Will you be a part of this movement by considering a contribution today? If everyone reading our blog gave just $10, we’d have enough money to fund our legal teams for the next year.
