Carbon Cash-Back Celebration!
On Thursday, August 19, 2021, a celebration was held to recognize the many accomplishments and show appreciation for the C3 Town Champions across New Hampshire who made the Carbon Cash-Back project a success!
Citizens in 45 New Hampshire towns put the Carbon Cash-Back Coalition's Resolution to Take Action on Climate Pollution article on their town's warrant to help inform voters and let them weigh in about the solution at Town Meetings
Voters in 34 New Hampshire Towns (75% of all the towns that voted) have passed the Resolution to Take Action on Climate Pollution warrant article, some by 97% in favor
3 Town and City Councils passed the Resolution to Take Action on Climate Pollution
1 County's Commissioners passed the Resolution to Take Action on Climate Pollution
We heard from elected climate leaders and a local clean energy business leader, and presented a request to Governor Sununu to prepare our state for federal carbon pricing by increasing investments in energy efficiency and avoiding new fossil fuel infrastructure investments, and asked him to endorse federal legislation to implement cash-back carbon pricing.
The Carbon Cash-Back project is helping create the political will for effective and equitable climate solutions now.
See and share our event press release, sent to major media outlets across New Hampshire.
