Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) released the following statement regarding today’s House passage of H.R.627, the Streamlining Energy Efficiency for Schools Act of 2017, a bill she co-introduced in January:

“Outdated and inefficient heating, cooling and ventilation systems place a financial burden on too many New Hampshire school districts. Improving energy efficiency is a simple and effective way to lower energy costs, improve environmental sustainability, and invest in our kids and our communities. While many existing federal programs exist to support such upgrades, finding out about them can prove a hurdle for overburdened administrators. Our bill will save New Hampshire schools time and money by making it easier to find and apply for federal financing to support energy efficiency improvements.”
