Our Warrant Article PASSED at Town Meeting on March 16th!  

The NH PUC has APPROVED Mason's Community Power Plan! 

There will be a public meeting on August 26th @ 7PM at the Mason Elementary School to discuss the CPCNH roll out of Mason Community Power including the rates expected.

We hope to have Mason Community Power up and running by October 2024. 

The Mason Energy Aggregation Committee holds public meetings the last Monday of every month at 7 PM in the Mann House in Mason. 

This is the Warrant Article that passed:

Version One of Mason's Community Power Plan can be found here: 

There are generally two main reasons towns resort to Community Power: first to reduce rates and second to have more renewable energy options available.

Typically a town would have a plan that has multiple options to choose from including an option to "opt out" of Community Power.

 

Even though it may not save a lot of money, Community Power gives a community more control over sourcing and can give consumers the opportunity to choose renewable energy. 

While renewal energy sources maybe a bit more expensive at first, it is NOT because it is not available it is because the demand is so high!

There are a two brokers or services that  Mason is considering for assistance with Community Power:

Standard Power and Community Power Coalition of NH (CPCNH).
