NH Business: How will NH benefit from the new climate law?

Fred Kocher joins Tom Burack and Sam Evans-Brown to learn how clauses in the Inflation Reduction Act can help the Granite State



Welcome to business in Hampshire. I’m Fred Coker. How will New Hampshire benefit from climate and clean energy provisions in legislation from Congress? But first, let’s take a look at this report on New Hampshire’s climate by the University of New Hampshire. researcher. Granite, they say, Granite State is the new normal, warm and watery since the 1970s. Higher temperatures and more extreme average precipitation. By 2010, in 2100 there will be 50-60 days per year of temperatures above 90°C. If greenhouse gas and carbon emissions aren’t currently being cut, is this related to the recent House Bill 172 in the New Hampshire Legislature? And establish a clean climate action plan. And, as I mentioned, there is a bill in Congress called the Inflation Reduction Act. But it does have these provisions for climate and clean energy. Many factoring tax credits consumer and business tax credits, emissions grants and loans, research and development and state aid grants and loans. Oh. Can you elaborate on this from a New Hampshire perspective? How We Can Benefit is a former New Hampshire Commissioner of Environmental Services who is now a shooting range law firm and chairman of Clean Energy, the New Hampshire Department of Agriculture. Welcome. Thank you very much, Fred. SAM EVANS-BROWN, Clean Energy, New He was executive director of Hampshire, formerly New He was his lead reporter on the energy environment for Hampshire Public Radio, and has won several awards for its reports. Welcome Sam. Thank you Fred. Tom, based on what we know at this point, how can New Hampshire benefit from climate and clean energy legislation from Congress? Thank you, Fred. There are many ways New Hampshire can benefit. Because, for the first time in history, this law creates alternative policies, focusing on clean energy economy transition, growth and low carbon emissions and energy sources. The law uses $369 billion in tax credits for rebates and subsidies. The goal is to do as much as possible to help us here in New Hampshire. From the supply side, such as solar energy, wind energy, and storage batteries, to the demand side, electric vehicles, electric heat pumps, and other appliances can make our lives better and reduce energy costs. These tax credits are valid for 10 years and provide the predictable certainty and real stability that the market needs for us. What this bill does for the United States, Sam, New Hampshire reporter on climate energy issues, Sam. How do you see the benefits for New Hampshire? Well, really, that’s what it does to create consumer research. So all kinds of technology are already paid for. But the problem is that many of them are slightly more expensive upfront. So they can pay for themselves over the lifetime of their investment, but many consumers just look at the initial price tag and struggle to adopt them. All receive tax credits, many of which can be converted into rebates to purchase the initial cost. So consumers are suddenly making these cost comparisons and realizing that the up-front costs of using clean energy technologies are actually not that expensive. Things like heat pumps, heat pumps, hot water heaters. As you know, there are rebates even when you upgrade your electric service in your home, and if you have old service and those numbers are tallied in various shops, you can electrify your heating and cooling needs. can do. This means there are 14 grounds on the table for all homeowners who want to reduce emissions in their homes. And the research shop that examined this estimate believes that the average consumer who takes that step to reduce emissions could save $73,000 a year in energy costs. I believe it was the only state I knew of that had no restrictions from. How do you do that? Really fast. Very quickly, what we have to do is recognize that we have a great capacity here in New Hampshire, a long tradition of bringing the business community, government and non-profits together to find common ground. . And what we have to do is send a very strong signal to the market that New Hampshire wants to lead in this space, that it wants to attract entrepreneurs, that it wants to bring investment into New Hampshire and that it wants to build New Hampshire. is that there is Really clean energy clean energy technology hot buds. Thank you Tom. Tom, thank you for your deeds in photographing Vinnie Bass at Green Law Firm and Clean Energy in New Hampshire and Sam Evans Brown at Clean Energy in New Hampshire.
