A Small New Hampshire Town‘s Journey to 100 Percent Renewables

September 29, 2021

On May 2021, 74 percent of residents of the town of Peterborough in New Hampshire voted for a community-wide transition to 100 percent renewable electricity by 2030 and 100 percent renewable heat and transportation by 2050. The power behind such a great voter during the time of the pandemic is Dori Drachman, who led the effort to put this ambitious climate action on the ballot. She is chair of the Peterborough Energy Action, a grassroots organization dedicated to move the town of Peterborough in New Hampshire to 100 percent clean, affordable, renewable energy for all. Dori shares how she and other volunteers made the clean energy transition commitment possible and what kind of work lies ahead for her community to begin the implementation phase of the transition.
