BECAUSE OUR CHOICES SHAPE OUR FUTURE

From the sparkling waters of the lakes region, to the forests of the north woods, to the rugged rocky coastline, and the majesty of the White Mountains – NH boasts an abundance of unparalleled natural beauty and resources.

If you’re a NH resident, you are part of the pioneering spirit that makes living here a truly unique experience. With a state slogan like “Live free or die,” is it any wonder why NH has always welcomed and supported bold, new ideas and turned its back on convention?

To continue this grand tradition, we must make the right choices. We must choose to embrace renewable, sustainable sources of energy that will shape our future.

Keep NH Thriving. Keep NH Green.

Legislation affecting Burgess BioPower is currently pending.

Green energy provided by Burgess BioPower is what helps keeps NH thriving.

 

By providing renewable energy Burgess BioPower not only helps keep our air and water clean, but also creates new jobs and a substantial amount of business activity.

SITUATION:

  • The economic viability of Burgess BioPower is currently under scrutiny
  • Burgess BioPower is a biomass plant that uses wood scraps that would otherwise be discarded to create clean, green, renewable and sustainable energy
  • Burgess BioPower is responsible for providing a significant amount of NH’s renewable energy
  • Without this valuable resource, NH could take a giant step backward

 

IF BURGESS BIOPOWER CLOSES:

  • A significant number of jobs will be lost
  • Property taxes and business taxes will increase
  • State and local tax revenue will decrease
  • North Country unemployment and Medicaid costs will rise

Is this what you want for the future of NH?
