Deal struck to sell NH wind farm power to Mass.
Iberdrola, a Spain-based wind power giant, announced the agreement on Thursday, saying the deal would help “consolidate New Hampshire as a leader in meeting New England’s renewable power needs.”
“Why should New Hampshire residents be expected to sacrifice our economy and quality of life to help Massachusetts meet its Renewable Portfolio Standards goal?” said Lerner.
“We are pleased to continue investing in New Hampshire, a state helping to lead the clean energy economy,” Cherian said. “Wild Meadows could serve as a significant new source of renewable power, and also generate new revenue for the towns and the state.”
“We need to ask, what about New Hampshire’s clean, wild places? What about New Hampshire residents’ health, quality of life and sense of place?” Lerner said. “If Massachusetts is interested in pursuing renewable energy through wind projects, why don’t they site the projects in their state?”
