I wish I could be with you at the exciting launch of the Energize 360 campaign. Please know that I am with you in spirit as you celebrate another important step toward a clean energy future.
As you know, I have long been an outspoken advocate of energy efficiency. It is the fastest, cheapest, most readily available path to making our community more energy independent while addressing a whole range of challenges facing our region – everything from surging energy prices to declining energy supply to the very real threat of climate change.
We can take pride in the fact that New Hampshire and the Northeast have led the way in tapping into the potential of energy efficiency in our homes and our office buildings. And – with patience, persistence and the support of project partners in Dover, Durham, Lee, Northwood and Portsmouth – we are extending the benefits of renewable energy to more residents and businesses through the Energize 360 campaign. With each successful energy project, the experience and expertise of installers, vendors, advocates and the public is enhanced, helping the next project come together a little easier. Thank you to project partners for your continued vital work helping our communities make effective use of our renewable energy resources.
Thank you again for the invitation to attend, and best wishes in all of your future endeavors.
