Energy Efficiency Programs

New Hampshire’s natural gas utilities offered energy efficiency programs from 1993 through 1999, at which time the programs were suspended in light of gas industry restructuring and investigation of the electric industry’s development of energy efficiency programs.

On January 1, 2003, the natural gas utilities again began offering energy efficiency programs for New Hampshire customers. The programs are designed to increase customer awareness of the benefits of energy efficiency products, services and practices, induce lasting market changes and realize energy efficiency savings that might not occur without the programs. Current programs approved for 2011 and 2012 are largely a continuation of programs that have been in effect for a number of years, with incremental improvements over prior versions.  Program summaries from prior versions of the energy efficiency plans are available for review through links identified below.

Programs common to both Unitil/Northern and Liberty/EnergyNorth (formerly National Grid NH) include audit and weatherization services, high efficiency heating and water heating equipment, Energy Star Homes, and a residential Conservation Services Program. Each utility also offers low income efficiency programs and additional programs not common to both. For specific program offerings and requirements, please contact your utility or visit their website.

Details of energy efficiency programs filed with the Commission since 2008, including orders and results, can be found in the related docket located under docketbook in the Virtual File Room.  For energy efficiency programs approved by the Commission prior to 2008 see below for orders and results.
