Why Are NH Republicans Voting to Make Electricity More Expensive?

by Steve MacDonald

Government WasteNew Hampshire Senate Bill 129 will make New Hampshire’s already high electric rates higher. So why are a majority of Republicans in the State House and State Senate supporting this bill? Your guess is as good as mine.

I get why Democrats support it. It uses government force and taxpayer dollars to prop up expensive and inefficient renewable energy. It takes money from residents and job creators and gives it to bureaucrats so they can create fewer jobs that cost more and deliver less.

It raises subsidies for biomass, a shill to the timber lobby and the North Country. It provides subsidies for residential solar installations. So it uses your tax dollars to make your electricity cost more, and your employer’s electricity cost more.

What the hell are Republicans doing backing this sort of redistributive green energy crap?
