A new member has joined the NHEC Board of Directors after being elected to a three-year term. Leo Dwyer of Sandwich, NH was elected by the members during the 2017 Board election. Dwyer, whose background includes developing large scale thermal energy plants, said he wants to lessen the impact of system charges imposed on NHEC by ISO-New England, the regional grid administrator, by working more closely with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

In addition, two incumbent members were re-elected to the Board of Directors – Joan Aubrey of Jackson and Harry Viens of Center Harbor.
