Assistant Mayor Below accepting Energy Award on behalf of the City of Lebanon

On April 23, 2021, during the concluding session of NH Energy Week, the City of Lebanon was named the 2021 NH Energy Week Municipal Energy Champion. The City of Lebanon was nominated by the CDFA along with the Town of Strafford, Towns of Hopkinton and Webster, Town of Bethlehem/Bethlehem Energy Committee, and the City of Concord. Assistant Mayor Clifton Below accepted the award on behalf of the City of Lebanon which was recorded and can be viewed on the NH Energy Future YouTube channel. 📺

Nancy Merrill, Claremont Planning and Development Director, presented the award stating that: 

“[The City of Lebanon] is diligently working to implement the vision contained in the Energy Plan within their Master Plan; [is] striving to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 26 percent by 2025; [is] leading efforts to advance community power aggregation in the State and [is] investing in energy efficiency battery storage and other cutting-edge clean energy efforts.” 

Assistant Mayor Below praised the efforts of all those involved in achieving the City’s ambitious energy goals, including the Lebanon Energy Advisory Committee, City Council, and City Manager. 

These achievements include but are not limited to: 

  • hosting Solarize and Weatherize programs;
  • adding solar to most of the City facility buildings;
  • curtailing wastewater and water treatment loads during the highest peak demand in New England;
  • exporting power to the grid during highest peak times, reducing our capacity tags down to zero for our two biggest loads in the City;
  • working on making city buildings more energy efficient including a major energy retrofit on City Hall which cut heating consumption by half;
  • working to bring Municipal Aggregation (Lebanon Community Power) and working with other communities throughout the state to develop the community power coalition of NH. 

A very special thank you to all those involved in achieving this award and for helping the City of Lebanon continue to achieve its energy and climate action goals.
