  • The Week Ahead: Keep your eyes peeled for brighter days

    DISCLAIMER: This is not a press release

    Hello there!


    Oh, what a wild and wet start to the week. 

    The good news is it’s perfect weather for tucking in at home and watching a good movie. Or getting takeout from your favorite local restaurant. And lighting a candle to amp up the atmosphere. Whatever you do, stay dry and keep your eyes peeled for brighter, better sounding days ahead.


    And now, here is, the Week Ahead: 

    Tuesday, 2/23, 10 a.m. to noon., Online: Seacoast Chamber Alliance Offshore Wind Forum. The offshore wind industry promises thousands of new jobs and billions of dollars in investments and economic impact. New Hampshire is estimated to have 3.4 gigawatts of potential offshore wind power off our coasts and the capacity to serve as an important part of the offshore wind supply chain. In December 2019, Gov. Sununu passed an executive order preparing New Hampshire for future wind development and Sen. David Watters (D-Dover) has filed legislation designed to help spur the development of offshore wind projects and other renewable energy in the region.
