Freedom Energy currently works with several hydro assets providing locally produced green energy for our clients.
As early as 2016, our team finalized an innovative method of electricity supply purchasing. Utilizing research on HB1116, we created a unique power purchasing arrangement between the University of New Hampshire (UNH) and local hydropower generators within the same utility. Dubbed Direct-to-Green, this method is unlike traditional REC (Renewable Energy Certificates) purchasing from wind farms across the nation, now giving clients access to locally produced green energy.
In 2021, Central Rivers Power selected Freedom Energy as the group net metering administrator for four of its hydro assets interconnected in New Hampshire. The portfolio, which produces approximately 40,000 megawatt hours of renewable electricity per year, includes Gorham Hydro, Canaan Hydro, Jackman Hydro, and Hooksett Hydro, each located in the towns of Gorham, Stewartstown, Hillsborough, and Hooksett, respectively.
