On April 7, 2016, in a 19-4 vote, the New Hampshire Senate passed H.B.1116, a bill to double the state’s net energy metering (NEM) cap. The New Hampshire House of Representatives approved it in March, and Gov. Maggie Hassan, an outspoken supporter of raising the NEM limit, has pledged to sign the legislation into law. State lawmakers have been working on increasing the 50 MW cap since New Hampshire utilities started reaching their allocated NEM amounts. The bill also orders state utility regulators to begin exploring alternative NEM tariffs.
