Town of Litchfield Community Power Committee Notice of PUBLIC HEARING on November 28, 2023, at 7 pm Fire Station HQ-1-Community Room
In accordance with RSA 53-E you are hereby notified of a PUBLIC HEARING to consider approval of the
Litchfield Community Power Plan
The Town is considering implementing a new Town program called Community Power, or in other states, called Municipal Aggregation. If adopted by a majority of Town voters, The Community Power Plan would empower the Town to enter into Electric Services Agreements with Competitive Electric Power Suppliers to serve the electric supply needs of residents and small businesses in the Town. The intent is to pool our electricity demand and use the power of the competitive market for cost savings and more local renewable energy supply choices.
You are invited to attend the hearing to hear a short presentation, ask questions, and offer your comments. If you are unable to do so there will be another public hearing on December 4th, or feel free to email the Committee at email@example.com for more information.
