Energy & Environment

From the Mount Washington Valley to the Seacoast, New Hampshire’s way of life and economy are rooted in our natural surroundings. We should all work to leave our environment better than we found it by promoting clean energy, supporting environmental protection, and directly confronting the existential threat of climate change.

As your Representative in Congress, I am committed to combating climate change and making sure that we protect our natural resources for generations to come. On the New Hampshire Executive Council, I worked to secure investments for solar, wind, biomass, hydro, and geothermal projects across New Hampshire. I am focused on maintaining clean energy incentives and tax credits to ensure that the Granite State leads the way in developing a robust clean energy economy.

I strongly oppose pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement, ending the Clean Power Plan, and rolling back protections for our water and air—which have undermined critical environmental protections. I believe it is critical that Congress develop and pass thoughtful, innovative solutions to the climate crisis before it’s too late to mitigate the worst effects of the catastrophic changes that are already upon us. We must act now to put our state and our nation on a pathway to a more sustainable future.
