Utility Customers: Unfortunately, NHSaves has paused any new HPwES energy audits and Visual audits until further notice.

There will be no new applications for energy audits at this time, the website will be updated once we are able to accept new applications.

The New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission issued an Order regarding the proposal for the 2021-2023 NHSaves energy efficiency programs. The Order does not approve the proposed Plan and makes a number of directives regarding future rates, future filings, budgets and other key areas of program design and administration. The New Hampshire Utility Partners are working diligently to understand the implications of the Order to the NHSaves programs and to develop solutions so that we can collectively move forward with our important energy efficiency programs.

Any new projects anticipated for 2022 and any new residential projects for 2021 are now paused.

There will be more information and updates regarding future availability for funding on NHSaves projects will be shared as it becomes available.
