As the summer days shorten and nights get a bit colder, I can’t help but start to get excited about another turkey and deer hunting season with my bow and arrow.
I have been an avid outdoorsman and hunter all of my life and am proud of our state’s commitment to preserving our natural resources. Over the past year, I have been volunteering with Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions, talking about clean energy opportunities right here in our state.
I want to applaud the Antrim Wind Project for striking a balance between harnessing clean energy while carving out 908 acres that will be permanently conserved. This seems to be a smart balance that the Antrim Selectboard supports, along with the Sierra Club and their entire elected state delegation.
To make this an even better deal for New Hampshire conservationists and ratepayers, a significant portion of the power generated by the Antrim Wind Project will stay in the state of New Hampshire to power local homes and businesses.
Let’s hope the Site Evaluation Committee sees this project as model for smart, community supported energy.
