Learn How Our Team Revolutionizes Group Net Metering for Municipalities in New Hampshire

Discover how Freedom Energy is empowering municipalities in New Hampshire to partner with local renewable energy generators through Group Net Metering (GNM). By acting as proxy off-takers, municipalities align their energy usage with production, earning revenue while contributing to a greener future. GNM requires no behavioral change—simply sign up and continue normal electricity usage. With flexible commitment options and no impact on supply agreements, GNM offers a tangible way to support local renewable energy projects.

Skeptical? We understand that there may be questions about the program; however, GNM is a legitimate program that benefits both participants and the environment. Hear from current Group Net Metering members, read our FAQs about the program, and more by clicking here.
