Natural Resources, Clean Energy & Climate Change

From the White Mountains to the Seacoast, to our pristine lakes and forests – New Hampshire’s natural resources are critical to our economy, our environment, and our way of life. Throughout her time in public service, Senator Hassan has always fought to protect our environment and has been a strong supporter of curbing the devastating impacts of climate change. 

As a State Senator and then as Governor, she worked to create and strengthen the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) and New Hampshire’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) to maintain and grow the state’s clean, renewable energy sector. She also worked across party lines as Governor to raise the net metering cap in order to boost New Hampshire’s solar industry and ensure that it can continue to grow and thrive.

Senator Hassan is fighting to ensure that the federal government follows New Hampshire’s lead, working to bring people together to combat climate change, protect our beautiful natural resources, and build a more innovative and affordable clean energy future. The Senator strongly supports measures, such as the Clean Power Plan, to cut carbon emissions and is working to prevent oil and gas drilling off the East Coast. She also believes it is essential to appropriately fund programs that conserve and protect our nation’s natural resources. 

Senator Hassan will stand firm against any effort to roll back critical environmental protections, including those that protect the water we drink and the air we breathe for future generations.
