NH Business Newsmakers: EPA honors Hypertherm




HANOVER — Hypertherm Inc., based in Hanover, has been recognized by the EPA as one of the nation’s top purchasers of alternative energy.

As part of EPA’s Green Power Partnership, more than 1,300 organizations are purchasing billions of kilowatt-hours of green power annually, avoiding carbon pollution equal to that created by the electricity use of more than 2.5 million American homes, the EPA said.

In 2014, Hypertherm used green power for 100 percent of its energy needs by purchasing more than 18 million kilowatt hours of renewable energy certificates.

The company designs and manufactures plasma, laser and waterjet cutting products for use in a variety of industries such as shipbuilding, manufacturing and automotive repair.
