3 NH towns vote for local control over wind farm projects
In Tuesday’s elections, three area towns adopted a “Community Bill of Rights” or rights-based ordinances asserting towns’ rights to local self-governance and with rules banning unsustainable energy projects.
The state’s Site Evaluation Committee presently has siting authority for large wind-energy projects, but the rights-based ordinances seek to assert local control. According to local advocates of rights-based ordinances, similar ordinances have been instituted in several towns in the state, but have not yet been tested in New Hampshire courts.
