Utilities can only become more affordable through the encouragement of greener, sustainable alternative sources of power. Also deregulation will allow additional providers for residential consumers in the state (i.e. competition and choice). NH needs to look at creating green energy plants for our future, and the future of the grid.

We have so many rooftops already, why not give incentive to people to have solar panels on those roofs? The panels pay themselves off in an average of seven years and after that we have free electricity! Who can argue against free energy? Oil and coal are running out (not to mention highly destructive), nuclear is foolish and dangerous, solar is clean and free!
